Alliums come in all shapes and sizes and, as they flower in early summer, are ideal to bridge the gap between spring and summer bedding. Allium 'Drumstick' has unusual, egg-shaped flower heads that start green and gradually turn purple from the top, creating a two-tone effect. They’ll thrive in mixed borders, or can be planted into patio containers to provide a focal point. Height: 50cm to 1 metre (20" to 40"). Spread: 10cm (4"). Supplied as bulbs.

Culinary information: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Click here for more details about edible flowers.

Allium bulbs should be planted in autumn, with the pointed end facing upwards, at a depth of approximately 3 times their height. Choose a sunny position in free draining soil.
Alliums thrive in dry sunny conditions so feeding and watering should not be necessary except on the driest of soils. Alliums will not repeat flower in the same year. Their faded spherical flower heads can be removed after flowering if necessary; however they will make a wonderful architectural display in the autumn if left intact.
