Sicilian Honey Garlic

Sicilian Honey Garlic Medium-height Allium

Allium siculum This rugged beauty bears up to 30 delicate pendent bell-shaped ½-1" flowers on 2" pedicels, forming 4-5" spreading umbels, at the top of slightly arching stems. The cream-colored florets are tinged purplish-rose. Sharply keeled 12-16" blue-grey twisting basal leaves smell of garlic only when crushed.

Also called Mediterranean Bells. Formerly Allium bulgaricum and Nectaroscordum siculum, among others. Native from Provence and Sicily, along the north shores of the Mediterranean, and up into Bulgaria, where it is used as a seasoning.

Plant in sun to semi-shade, in well-drained soil. 24-36", LS-ESu, Z5-9. 8-10cm.

Additional Information

Flowering Onions

The large Allium genus is characterized by small six-petaled florets held in umbels—large or small, loose or tight. Sweet-smelling blooms make great fresh cutflowers or dried winter arrangements whether you cut them before or after the green seed pods form. The same genus as all edible onions, garlic and chives. Most repel pests, and only when crushed do they smell like onion.
