We had to have me standing here or you would think we were exaggerating if we claimed this allium grows to at least 7 feet. But here you see it. AND it dries elegantly in the garden too, standing right into winter.
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.
Removing the foliage once it becomes tatty doesn't appear to affect the bulbs.
