These three are the alliums I pick most. I love the starry openness of 'Purple Rain', the beautiful and long-lasting pink-mauve flowers of unifolium and of course the ever stalwart, 'Purple Sensation', impossible to beat in flower or seed head. These are my desert-island three.This collection includes:
- 3 or 5 bulbs of Allium jesdianum 'Purple Rain'
- 15 or 30 bulbs of Allium unifolium
- 15 or 30 bulbs of Allium hollandicum 'Purple Sensation'
Our bulb collections will be supplied with each variety bagged individually. To reduce waste, we no longer collate these into a second larger bag. Your delivery paperwork will list details of the collection you have ordered and the varieties included. Our bags can either be recycled or composted (please check bags for details).
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.
