Allium karataviense Ivory Queen

Allium karataviense Ivory Queen

OUT OF STOCK
This fantastic and unusual dwarf allium produces large ivory white domes cradled by broad curvy leaves in a shade of silvery green. Unlike other Allium varieties, Ivory Queen reaches a compact height of just 25cm, making it an ideal choice for pots and rockeries or featured at the front of the border. The flower heads are roughly the size of an orange and are a fine novelty when in flower during May and June. 10/12cm bulbs supplied.
