(Mature Size: 24"T x 24"W)
This ornamental onion has snaky, twisty leaves that will remind you of the snake hair from the Medusa legend.
‘Medusa’ forms a low mound of grey-green, narrow foliage with leaves the twist slightly at the end.
The nodding buds look like snakes at the tips of the stems, before they straighten to form 1.75-2” rounded clusters of light amethyst purple flowers.
Similar in flower color and flower foliage to ‘Blue Eddy’, but in a much larger form.
Butterflies and honeybees adore the flowers' sweet nectar but deer and rabbits steer clear of this perennial beauty.
The bright purple flowers contrast beautifully with nice gold hostas.
Plant this Allium next to gold hostas like 'Prairie Moon' or 'August Moon' to make the colors pop.
