Description

I think many of us like the idea of alliums in long grass – as you might see in the wild on a Cretan hillside.

All these flower reliably in turf and return year on year, giving you a flowery swathe for a long season. You could preceed these with >a href="https://www.sarahraven.com/products/narcissus-actaea">Narcissus poeticus, Narcissus 'Cheerfulness' and Camassia leichtlinii 'Caerulea' to extend the season.

This collection contains:

  • 15 bulbs of Allium nigrum
  • 10 bulbs of Allium atropurpureum
  • 5 bulbs of Allium nigrum 'Pink Jewel'
  • 5 bulbs of Allium x cristophii 'Mercurius'

This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.

Care Tips

Removing the foliage once it becomes tatty doesn't appear to affect the bulbs.
