‘Forescate’ Chives have dark pink to lavender round flower heads held on straight stems above the edible tubular foliage. Alliums bloom heavily in summer and are perfect for sunny locations that have deer problems. Allium ‘Forescate’ is an excellent addition to rock or scree gardens (think ‘Beth Chatto’), and deadheading after the bloom period is a good idea because the schoenoprasum cultivars seed easily. A slightly taller, darker, more brilliant pink than the species. Is a effective accent in green roof meadows. ‘Forescate’ is very attractive to many pollinators. One of Roy Diblik’s favorite Alliums.
