The tiny, star-shaped flowers of the Pinball Wizard Allium bloom in sphere-shaped clusters. The flowers have a lavender hue and are perched on top of single, thin stems with a medium green color. The flowers stand above narrow, strap-like foliage. The Pinball Wizard Allium starts to bloom in the spring, and the flowers last into the summer.
Plant this allium in beds, borders, or mass plantings for a meadow-like look. Trim the tall stems to display the flowers in arrangements. The globe-shaped flower clusters attract pollinators, like butterflies. Foraging animals like deer and rabbits generally leave alliums alone. Established plants are easy to maintain and drought tolerant. The Pinball Wizard Allium grows as a perennial in zones 4 through 9.
Pinball Wizard Allium Care
The Pinball Wizard Allium requires at least 6 hours of direct sunlight to thrive. This plant can live in low-quality soil but responds well to rich soil. The soil should have medium moisture and be well drained. Water your allium during a dry period to help the plant continue to grow. Apply fertilizer in the fall and spring for continued growth.
Propagate Pinball Wizard Allium through division during the late fall or early spring. Bulbs may be pushed to the surface when the plant is crowded, so you’ll know it is time to divide the plant.
Pinball Wizard Allium Spacing
The Pinball Wizard Allium is a clump-forming, upright plant that will reach 24 to 30 inches tall and 6 to 12 inches wide. Space plants 8 to 10 inches apart to create a stunning mass of flowers.
