Description

The best of all alliums for naturalising in grass, robust, long-season flowering, impressive yet also with simple, wild flower looks.

This is ideal for giving height and scale to late spring/early summer white-themed planting schemes too.

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.
