Description

The best all round garden and flower arranging allium. 'Purple Sensation' starts to flower after the tulips in mid-May.

I'll pick flowers and then beautiful green bead-like seed heads until the end of July and I use them to decorate the tree at Christmas – simply cut them, then dry and spray silver.

No early summer garden is complete without a good drift of these.

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.

Allium petals are edible, you can scatter them on salads. We use the more delicate types like cowanii and unifolium most often at Perch Hill.

Care Tips

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