    'Purple Sensation' is probably one of the most popular of all the alliums. They have a striking silhouette which makes them particularly well suited to gravel or prairie-style planting schemes, but they also look fab in pots or mixed borders. Their densely packed umbels of deep violet, star-shaped flowers appear in early summer above strap-shaped grey-green leaves (which will have already started to die off by the time the blooms form). Therefore, they team up well then with things like herbaceous geraniums or ornamental grasses, which will help mask these leaves as they die off.

    This tulip forms part of our organic bulb range. Sadly there are only a handful of growers who are currently able to grow their bulbs organically, so although we stock as many as we can source, our range is limited. They are supplied in a plastic-free compostable bag.

  • Garden care: Using gloves plant bulbs 10-15cm deep and 15cm apart in early or mid-autumn.
  • Pets: TOXIC if eaten; Humans: Ornamental bulbs - not to be eaten
