If you're new to Alliums, this is a fantastic collection to get you started! These popular RHS AGM varieties produce spherical architectural flower heads in May and June perched on stiffly upright stems. As the flowers fade, attractive seed heads remain which become straw coloured as the season progresses, persisting throughout autumn. Dot Allium 'Lover's Collection' among herbaceous perennials, at the front of borders or in patio containers where they will attract bees and other pollinating insects. Supplied as bulbs.

  • Allium hollandicum 'Purple Sensation' – An RHS AGM Allium with spherical flower heads up to 8cm (3") across consisting of star-shaped deep violet flowers. Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 15cm (6").

Flowering Months
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.
Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten. 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.
