Holder of a prestigious Award of Garden Merit, this gorgeous allium was one of the best performers at a recent RHS trial. It is easy to grow, and will reliably produce its open heads of star-shaped flowers on sturdy stems that stand up well in poor weather conditions. A cross between the ever popular A. 'Purple Sensation' and A. cristophii, this comes highly recommended, and is ideal for adding early summer colour and structure.
- Garden care: Plant bulbs 15cm deep and 15cm apart to enjoy the full effect of the flowers. Avoid excessive soil moisture, and split and divide large clumps in autumn or spring.
- CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
