ALLIUM x Windy City PP28100 (Windy City Globe Lily) ‘Windy City’ Globe Lily is a showy introduction by Brent Horvath and Intrinsic Perennial Gardens. The globe-shaped, dark purple flowers are held above the green flat leaves on 18” sturdy green stems in mid-summer. The seed heads turn tan in the fall and persist well into winter. They make an attractive addition to dried arrangements. Allium x ‘Windy City’ is a good addition to green roofs, containers, and well drained sunny perennial gardens.
A Northern Sunset perennial, it prefers average, well-drained soil in full sun to part sun.
