    Dense, rich-purple globes held high on erect stems above strap-like, mid-green leaves appear in early summer. They look spectacular grouped in a pot, or in a sunny border, dotted in groups among ornamental grasses, or as part of a Mediterranean scheme. Alliums look best planted between medium-sized herbaceous plants, which help to mask the strap-like leaves, which fade by the time the flowers appear.

  • Garden care: Avoid excessive moisture from late summer when dormant.
