A beautiful allium, like A. cristophii in shape with airy sparkler flowers, but in a richer, deeper colour – this is truly fabulous.
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.
Removing the foliage once it becomes tatty doesn't appear to affect the bulbs.
