      Alliums are loved by bees and they will help add colour to the garden in early summer. These exciting new and unusual varieties will all look stunning planted together. They will make a unique accent in borders, rock gardens or containers and their flowers are all excellent for cutting. Smaller and daintier than the traditional cultivated allium varieties, these naturalise well and look good planted in naturalistic swathes or clusters.

      In each collection you will receive the following:

      50 × Allium oreophilum
      Also known as Allium ostrowskianum, the 'mountain lover', or 'pink lily leek'. A wonderful addition to pots and alpine beds, or simply dotted along the front of a sunny border, this diminutive ornamental onion puts on a great display in early summer when the open clusters of rich pink to purple flowers appear. Plant them in clusters and leave them undisturbed so they will form naturalised drifts. Grows to 15cm.

      10 × Allium 'Cameleon'
      Initially dusky rose pink, the early summer flowers fade to white as they mature, but retain their pink veining. Good for naturalising in swathes or clusters, this relatively compact form will also put on a fresh display in patio pots or windowboxes. Blend it with rich pink shades as well as lilacs and soft blues for best effect. Grows to 30cm.

      5 × Allium 'Eros' (PBR)
      Pinkish lilac, pointed tipped petals, form larger than average, star-shaped flowers, which top the upright stems in domed clusters (that can grow up to 10cm across) in early summer. This variety has been bred from the dainty Allium unifolium, so it is an elegant plant that will gradually form a good-sized clump if undisturbed. The flowers are excellent for cutting too, so plant more than you need for the border. Grows to 35cm.

    • Garden care: Plant bulbs 10cm deep and 10cm apart to enjoy the full effect of the flowers. Avoid excessive soil moisture, and split and divide large clumps in autumn or spring.
    • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
