Quick Overview

Allium sphaerocephalon

Allium sphaerocephalon is a small-headed rich, blackcurrant allium that is later-flowering than most and invaluable for that. I love it in bud, as much as in full flower, very pretty and will gently self-sow.

  • Perfect for pollinators

Genus: Allium
Variety sphaerocephalon
Type: Deciduous
Soil Type: Well-drained but fertile, add grit on heavy soils
Site: Full sun
Height: 60-90cm (2-3ft)
Spacing: Plant 10-15cm deep, 10-15cm apart.
Hardiness: Hardy
Care tips: Remember these are very perennial so plant them somewhere permanent. Removing the tatty foliage doesn't appear to affect the bulbs.
Flowers: ❀ July - August
For the vase: Add a drop of bleach to the water to minimise the oniony smell or change the water regularly. They will look good for up to 2 weeks without rearranging
