    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. The foliage tends to die back before the flowers emerge, then the flowers gently fade as summer comes to a close.

  • Garden care: Avoid excessive moisture from late summer when dormant.
  • Pets: TOXIC if eaten
