Our Allium 'Hairy Collection' is ideal for bridging the gap between spring and summer bedding. Alliums come in all shapes and sizes, and we’ve selected three gorgeous varieties that sport different ‘hairstyles’! They’ll thrive in mixed borders, or can be planted into a patio container to provide a striking focal point. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 10cm (4"). Supplied as bulbs.

  • Collection comprises:
  • Allium ‘Hair’ - A particularly curious type with purple-hearted flowers sporting outrageous green ‘hair’!
  • Allium ‘Drumstick’ - Unusual, egg-shaped flower heads that start green and gradually turn purple from the top.
  • Allium schubertii - An explosion of up to 200 small, pink florets create these magnificent, rounded flower heads.

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

Flowering Months

75 allium bulbs (V66169P)

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.
