Global purple-pink flowers appear in late summer above tight clumps of narrow, deep green, evergreen leaves. Flowers are a magnet for butterflies

This German garlic variety is an ornamental onion which is noted for (1) its unusual swirling and twisting leaves which are bluish-gray (glaucous) and (2) its compact size (it is smaller than the species).
