Product Description

Allium vineale is a startling unique flower. Also known as Allium hair, this variety produces tall fine stems support a purple bulb is sprouting a fine wiry surround of hairs. An exotic touch in floral displays, its best planted en-masse as it can get lost among more showy plants in the garden. The curled green leaves will wither before the flowers appear during the early summer so we recommend that they are accompanied by low-growing plants to provide filling foliage over the base areas. Height 80cm. Flowers May-June. 5cm+ bulbs supplied.

Growing at a glance…

Plant in fertile, well-drained soil at approx 10cm apart and at a depth of roughly 3-4 times the size of the bulb. Larger bulbs should be spaced 20cm apart. Leave untouched for a number of years until the bulbs have multiplied and divide if necessary. Smaller alliums can be grown in containers, but ensure it's large enough to space the bulbs an appropriate distance apart.
