Native to Central Asia, Allium giganteum comes from a large genus of around 700 species, some of which are edible and have medicinal uses, and others of which are more valued for their ornamental qualities. A. giganteum is predominantly relied upon as an ornamental garden plant: the flower globes attract bees, can be used in fresh and dried flower arrangements, and add drama to borders and dry meadows. Plant amongst species with lush foliage, as the leaves of this Allium die back close to flowering time and are best kept hidden.
