Allium sphaerocephalon

Allium sphaerocephalon is a small-headed rich, blackcurrant allium is later-flowering than most and invaluable for that. I love it in bud, as much as in full flower, very pretty and will gently self-sow.

Description

This small-headed, rich, blackcurrant allium is later to flower than most and is invaluable for that. I love it in bud, as much as in full flower, very pretty and will gently self-sow.

Care Tips

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