Care Tips This allium is a rhizome, it forms a clump which can be lifted and divided easily in either spring or autumn. It will spread by short rhizomes and by self-seeding. Deadheading spent umbels before seed sets not only helps control unwanted spread but also helps build a stronger bloom for the following year.
Flowering July - August
Vase Life 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.
