senescens 'Blue Eddy
Photo by Mark
In spring, the curling rosettes of blue-gray
foliage on this selection are especially
pleasing. In subdued morning light or when catching moisture in a
fine spring mist,
the rosettes appear mysteriously ghostly.
Unlike the typical (yet variable) plants under the name of Allium
var. glaucum, this is a hybrid selection that is much lower growing, and
more silvery growth, stronger swirling habit, and finer (more narrow) leaf
blades. This cultivar begins blooming in September with nice light
blooms on 6-8" stems. En masse, it makes a pretty groundcover.
