Globemaster’s spherical, deep lavender flower umbels are truly a sight to be seen as they grow atop elegant strap-like foliage each spring.

This bulbous perennial blooms forth like clockwork every year starting in early May and blooming till the end of spring in mid-June, with new florets continually blooming as the original ones fade. In total they will bloom about 5 weeks long, with their flower umbels growing larger and larger all the while. This bloom season is about twice as long as other allium because Globemaster does not self-seed; what this means is that instead of using energy to create seeds, it utilizes all its energy to produce gorgeous, strong flowers that last a good long time. Globemaster is an incredibly resilient plant with thick sturdy stems and can handle rough conditions, making it an excellent garden performer. Also, because it is a part of the wild onion family, it is generally very critter resistant and if planted all around the garden they can even stave off critters protecting some of your other more susceptible plants. Planted in an area with at least 6 hours of sunlight is optimal and will reap many rewards; the first season each bulb will produce 1-3 flowers, but then season after season they will multiply bringing more and more jaw dropping flowers. In due time they can easily be dug up and spread around the garden expanding their playful otherworldly look evermore. While Globemaster is jaw dropping on its own, accented with tulips, hyacinths, fritillaria, crocus, and daffodils is our favorite way to create the easiest fairy tale garden spring after spring.
