Dark lilac flowers that are star shaped with a metallic sheen to them. Ideal for encouraging pollinators into your garden. Alliums will grow in a wide range of soils provided there is good drainage. They like sunshine but the flowers will last longer in partial shade. Valuable for planting in groups in borders or for naturalising (flowering for year after year). Excellent, long lasting cut flower. Plant taller varieties to the rear of borders. Flowers can be used for dried arrangements.
