Deep red-purple flowers in compressed spherical shaped umbels bloom in late spring and early summer. The strap shaped leaves taper at the tip, and will wither before the flowers appear in early summer so we recommend accompanying them with low-growing plants to provide filling foliage over the base areas. Try planting behind Japanese Anemones which will flower later in the season and cover any untidy dead foliage when the alliums season is over. Height 60cm. 7/8cm bulbs supplied.
