Name: Allium hybrid ‘Serendipity’
Type of Plant: A mid-summer flowering perennial plant hardy in zones 4 – 8.
Why I Love/Hate this plant: I love this perennial for so many reasons. First, it’s attractive both before and after it flowers, which is important in my garden designs. Secondly, this is a fairly short plant – 15 to 20 inches tall – that grows in full clumps, so it blends in with other perennials and shrubs well.
I also love this because the deer and bunnies don’t eat it and this plant is fairly drought tolerant.
A Word to the Wise: Deadhead this plant by cutting off the dried flowers after they go by.
