    A river of alliums and stipa tenuissima

    • Nicholas Debelak

      Allium and grass - love this combo!: alliums are part of the onion family and have a faint onion-y scent. Beautiful purple globe flowers can be different sizes based on variety. Fairly drought tolerant if not in full-sun.

      GRASS, PURPLE - Mexican Feather Grass - (Nassella tenuissima) and allium. love the idea of using grass to hide allium stalks!

    • Rachel Myers

      The wonderful dream-like quality of this planting is down to its simplicity and the massed planting. Stipa tenuissima is the grass and the bulb is Allium 'Purple Sensation', both will fit well into your cottage garden and the grass will give softness and can be used as a great transition plant.

      Allium and Ornamental Grass Allium and Stipa Create this look with Allium Christophii and Stipa tenuissima. Perfect for planting in beds and borders, these tall varieties provide a complete contrast to each other which is what makes them look so good together. Allium Christophii is a popular variety with huge globe-shaped flowers in early summer. The soft, floaty golden foliage of Stipa tenuissima provides the perfect setting to the architectural Allium.

    allium through ferns - gorgeous. I hate to see when the "stalks" die on these and the ferns would hide the yellow. Although, I did not know you could grow these in the shade.....let's ask @Lisa Elifritz our resident master gardener!
