I planted approx 15 alium very carefully, and of those about 9 grew into plants, and only three of them flowered.

So I think actually the huge alliumns are rather strange looking and they struggled in the wind - think will stick with the Purple sensation in future but there was one that was very fluffy and tactile slightly lighter in colour - which would love to remember name of it was very striking and unusual

Excellent growth rate and length of flowering. Oonly a couple failed to grow, I suspect due more to situation than the bulbs.

The only words for my Allium display this year are wonderful and wonderful! The successional Allium collection worked a treat and, apart from one large Alluim never really coming to much, the rest of them more than made up for it. I sprinkled the white Allium collection among these and it looks divine. Thank you very much.
