Allium moly 'Jeannine'

Plant details

Yellow garlic is perhaps the most popular ornamental onion, and certainly one of the easiest to grow. An old traditional cottage garden plant, it is happy in full sun but also in partial shade, which makes it a valuable bulb for planting under deciduous trees and shrubs. Although a native of Spain and other warm areas of the Mediterranean, the bulbs are quite durable in our climate as long as the soil is well-drained. Allium moly 'Jeannine' produces bright yellow, star-shaped flowers. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
