Description

With large spheres of starry violet flowers on tall stems, ‘Purple Caila’ is perfect for sparkler explosions of colour in May. A rich source of nectar for pollinators and excellent as a cut flower too. You can dry the seedheads from July, hanging upside down, out of direct sunlight. Sprayed gold or silver in winter, they make fantastic Christmas decorations for natural sparkle.

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.
