  • Dense rich-purple globes held high on erect stems above strap-like mid green leaves appear in early summer. They look spectacular grouped in a pot or in a sunny border dotted in groups among ornamental grasses or as part of a Mediterranean scheme. Alliums look best planted between medium-sized herbaceous plants which help to mask the strap-like leaves which fade by the time the flowers appear.

  • Garden Care: Avoid excessive moisture from late summer when dormant.
