The glam rock member of the allium family – avant-garde and beautiful, this distinctive allium is full of character with its spiky, star-shaped flower in shiny metallic lilac. Later to flower and very long-lasting in the border, their unique form makes them a great choice for drying. A great foil to many early flowering perennials.
Alliums, or ornamental onions, are one of the most popular bulbs around and have become one of the main features in the late spring garden, bringing their colour and reliability to waking borders. The emerging spring foliage is a feature in its own right, and is followed by striking flowers. Continuing on to add impact to the early summer garden, the flowers can also be dried for winter decoration. They come in a wonderful range of colours and styles plus they don't need pampering. Just give them a place in full sun and average, free draining soil. Top grade bulbs supplied.
