A cross between Stipitatum and purple sensation, tiny spiky star shaped flowers form spherical heads 15cm across. These will look stunning soaring up at the back of the border and as you can see from the illustration are a natural partner to the breathtakingly beautiful Mount Everest (white). As with other alliums, its attractive curled green leaves 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. Height 1-1.2m. Flowering May-June. 18cm+ bulbs supplied.
