Nodding Onion

Nodding Onion

Allium cernuum 


Flower stems bend just below the cluster of lavender flowers, giving the plant its common name. The ribbon-like leaves are long and graceful.  A compact, showy and care-free addition to any sunny garden. Drought tolerant. Fairly uncommon in the remaining prairie remnants of southwest Ontario, but becoming popular with gardeners.
