The Mercurius ornamental onion is bulbous perennial that is grown for its tall attractive flowers. This plant develops a rosette of long, slightly arching leaves and constitutes a true wonder of nature. Stiff, straight stems that end with pink, semispherical clusters of typical star-shaped Allium flowers. Elegant growth form, noble colour, and intriguing shape encourage to grow this plant at flower beds and borders. Due to its size, about 80 centimetres, the Mercurius ornamental onion provides great material for group plantings in the garden and creating modern arrangements. Its flowers can be formed into fresh and dried bouquets.
Ornamental onion belongs to those species that everyone can grow without many problems. Plant its bulbs in autumn, from September to November. They winter well in the soil and require covering with mulch or twigs only in colder regions. To ensure spectacular flowering, plant this Allium at a sunny site, in permeable and fertile ground. Allium bulbs do not tolerate excess moisture, hence they grow best in a sandy, or sandy-loam soil. Fertilizing Allium with multicomponent plant food and transplanting bulbs every few years guarantee that your plants will stay beautiful and healthy.
