Allium Oreophilum, or Pink Lily Leek is a compact Allium that produces a mass of small deep pink flowers with up to 20 on each stem. Excellent for cut flower displays, they are also the ideal plant for the border as they are great naturalisers, and their vibrant colour makes Oreophilum a great choice for mixed displays, as illustrated. Flowers May-June. Height 30cm. 5cm+ bulbs supplied.
