Nectaroscordum siculum | Allium siculum
Also known as Allium siculum, and not often seen, this extraordinarily beautiful plant for the garden, Nectaroscordum siculum has stunning drooping umbels of bell-shaped flowers in tones of cream, pink and green that stand tall above the grey-green foliage that twists as the plants grow on sturdy leafless stems. Flowering in late spring or early summer the flowers are then followed by decorative seed pods in late summer that also look fabulous when dried. Plants will self-sow, so snip off the flower heads if you don't want more than you have.
Easy to grow in well-drained soil, in either full sun or a partially shaded position. Very drought tolerant once established you will also find bees attracted to the nectar these flowers provide. For visual impact, they look great planted in groups of odd numbers and they mix beautifully with alliums or papavers especially our Hungarian Blue Breadseed Poppy with its flowers in plummy tones and grey-green foliage. Frost hardy. An excellent flower for cutting.
