  • Holder of a prestigious Award of Garden Merit, this gorgeous allium was one of the best performers at a recent RHS trial. It's easy to grow, and reliably produces its open heads of star-shaped flowers, each topping sturdy stems that will stand up well in poor weather conditions. A cross between the ever popular A. 'Purple Sensation' and A. cristophii, 'Purple Rain' is ideal for adding early summer colour and structure - and is highly recommended.

  • Garden care: Bulbs can be planted 15cm deep and 15cm apart. Pot-grown plants can be enjoyed as they are while in bloom, but as the flowers fade, they should either be potted up or planted out in the garden. Avoid excessive mositure when the plants become dormant (from late summer) and lift and divide over-large clumps in autumn or spring.
  • Pets: TOXIC if eaten; Humans: Ornamental bulbs - not to be eaten
