    About the Bulbs

    Allium Sphaerocephalon Bulbs are commonly called Drumstick bulbs, a name rightfully derived from their round-headed appearance. They are part of the genus that includes onions and garlic, and are known to be very beneficial for the digestive system upon regular consumption.


    Allium Sphaerocephalon is native to the Mediterranean region and parts of central and southwestern Europe. Its distinctive round flower heads, resembling drumsticks, have earned it the popular name Drumstick Allium, Round Headed Garlic, and Round Headed Leek. This unique plant has found its way into gardens around the world, appreciated for its ornamental value and ability to attract pollinators.

    ➢Growing Conditions:


    Allium Sphaerocephalon bulbs thrive in full sunlight. Ensure they receive at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth and the development of their striking drumstick-like flower heads.


    Well-draining soil is very important for the growth of these bulbs. They prefer a slightly acidic to neutral soil pH. Enhance the soil with organic matter to improve drainage and fertility.

    ●Planting Depth:

    When planting Drumstick Allium bulbs, place them about 3-4 inches deep in the soil. Maintain proper spacing, typically 4-6 inches apart, allowing enough room for the development of their slender, arching leaves.


    Allium sphaerocephalon is relatively drought-tolerant, but keeping the bulbs consistent moist during growing seasons is good for their growth. Water the bulbs moderately, allowing the soil to dry out between watering sessions.


    These bulbs are hardy and can tolerate a range of temperatures. Plant them in the fall for spring blooms, and they will endure cooler conditions during their dormant period.


    Allium bulbs generally don't require heavy feeding. A balanced, slow-release fertilizer applied in early spring can provide the necessary nutrients for robust growth and flowering.

    ➢Drumstick Allium Flowering Time:

    The Drumstick Allium flower typically blooms in late spring to early summer. The distinctive round flower heads start out as green buds and gradually transform into deep burgundy hues, adding a unique and visually appealing element to the garden.

    ➢Allium Sphaerocephalon Leaves:

    Allium Sphaerocephalon leaves are slender and arched, and they add an elegant touch to the plant's overall appearance. These leaves emerge in the spring and gradually wither as the plant transitions into dormancy.

    ➢Planting Drumstick Allium Bulbs:

    These Drumstick bulbs should be planted in the fall, a few weeks before it gets cold. This timing allows the bulbs to establish roots before winter and ensures a wonderful display of drumstick-like blooms in the following spring. When choosing to buy Allium Sphaerocephalon bulbs, you must remember that they need adequate care and require nurturing to grow and blossom.
