    In each collection you will receive the following:

    10 × Allium nigrum
    The grey-green leaves of this ornamental onion have generally started to die back when the flowers emerge in early summer. These sit on tall, sturdy stems forming flattish clusters that create a striking silhouette. Each creamy-white to pale lavender flower has a pronounced ovary at its heart, which looks a little like a green pearl, nestled in the centre.

  • 10 × Allium atropurpureum
    As soon as we added this to our allium range, it immediately shot to the top of our wishlists. In early to mid-summer, each upright stem is crowned with a rounded cluster of small flowers, which seem to hover like large, brilliantly coloured jewels above the foliage. Each flower is made up of deep pink to purple petals surrounding a blueberry-purple centre, which creates a vibrant and exciting contrast of colours. Their drumstick shape is great for adding diversity to the border, while their sturdy stems make them ideal for cutting. If left in the border after the flowers have faded though, the subsequent seed heads will add months of structural interest.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs 15cm deep and 15cm apart to enjoy the full effect of the flowers. Avoid excessive moisture from late summer when they become dormant. Over-large clumps can be lifted and divided in autumn or spring.
