Flower seed | allium cernuum
This flower is distinctive and easy to identify with nodding, pink flowers. Nodding Onion is drought tolerant, and it survives in challenging sites where other plants refuse to live. Native to the United States, 12 - 18 inch Allium Cernuum thrives on rocky areas, dry woodlands, and prairie land that does not receive much water.
Allium Cernuum seeds grow lovely plants among rockery, in the woodland popping up through Carex foliage, nestled up against a tree trunk, or in the sunny rock garden. Allium Cernuum readily reseeds itself and will regrow from its own flower seeds. If this is not desired, deadhead when the flowers fade so its flower seed is not dropped on the ground.
