Description Fine Print
 
Ornamental onions offer intriguing spherical or egg-shaped inflorescences comprised of hundreds of tiny flowers. A. schubertii has loose, volleyball-sized heads of star-shaped flowers held on stalks of unequal length which looks like a giant firework exploding. 'Arctic Snow' is a special version with white rather than purple flowers. When the fruits ripen, the inflorescence detaches from the stem and rolls through the fields like a tumbelweed thus dispersing the seeds. From Israel and adjacent regions. Available in fall as dry bulbs and sometimes in spring as potted plants.
