A variable plant, which produces very pretty, open clusters of pale to rich pink flowers above the strap-shaped foliage. Flowering in late spring or early summer, this ornamental onion is useful for bridging the gap, creating pockets of colour when there is often a bit of a lull in the garden. Plant it into patio pots, or create drifts through the front of the border where it will slowly spread to form good-sized colonies.
- Garden care: Plant bulbs 5 - 10cm deep and approximately 5 - 10cm apart. Avoid excessive mositure from late summer when they become dormant. Over-large clumps can be lifted and divided in autumn or spring.
