Native to much of North America, nodding onion (Allium cernuum) produces slender. basal leaves and separate, upright stems to about 18 inches tall. At the top of each stem, a cluster of nodding buds open in midsummer to pink flowers. (The pink can vary greatly in intensity. My plants have very pale pink blooms.) Nodding onion is right at home in a meadow or naturalistic garden but also looks good in a more formal border. Be aware that it may self-sow if not deadheaded. Full sun to light shade. Zones 4 to 9.
Harvested in September 2020. At least 25 seeds.
