    A gorgeous allium with small, egg-shaped flowerheads, that top tall, slender stems in mid- to late summer. Planted en-masse in a border, these diminutive claret-coloured flowers look great emerging from a screen of foliage, or against a backdrop of ornamental grasses. They gently fade as summer comes to a close.

  • Garden care: For best effect plant the bulbs 8cm deep in natural drifts. Avoid soils that are too wet, and split and divide large clumps in autumn or spring.
