A tall and enduringly beautiful Allium, from which so many varieties have been bred. Tall purple flowerheads, from 1m to 1.5m tall, come out in mid-May to June and last well as a cut and dried flower. These seeds produce lots of natural variation in flower colour (which is why they are popular for breeding), so you shouldg et pale purple to deep lilac flower colours. They look good planted together in groups.
This Allium likes sun and well-drained soil.
Pack of 20 seeds. Sow in the autumn/winter in a cold frame or against a north facing wall and the seeds will germinate in the spring onwards once dormancy is broken. Or sow seeds in spring/summer including four weeks in a fridge. Germination is erratic, so sow more than you need. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
