I chose to seed it into the Hill Garden a couple of years ago because I felt that the palette needed a bit of a lift from all of the vibrant colors of fall provided by the sedums, roses and barberry bushes.
(See September GBBD for the full Hill Garden planting.)

I am very happy with the lightness it adds to the whole planting, and have started some more babies this year. It takes two years to flower from seed, but then quickly bulks up into nice clumps. It is thriving here in well-drained soil and full sun.
The last great Allium for the year!
Other alliums around Gilmore Gardens this year included: A. 'Purple Sensation' in mid-spring in the Front Walk; A. christophii in the same location; and A. s
phaerocephalonin the Driveway Garden.
And there will be more addition for next year; Allium multibulbosum is on my bulb order as of this week
