Buy Allium 'Pinball Wizard' ornamental onion or allium bulb: Large flower heads up to 15cm across.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need protection in winter)
  • Bulb size: 18/20

    Large heads (up to 15cm across) of slender-petalled, star-shaped flowers, top sturdy stems and add stature and colour to the border in late spring and early summer. A stunning plant, 'Pinball Wizard' is at its best when underplanted with mounding perennials that will help disguise the foliage, which has usually died back before the flowers make their appearance.

  • Garden care: Plant 15cm deep and 35-40cm apart so the flowers don't get overcrowded. Make sure the soil does not get too wet or waterlogged and split and divide large clumps in spring or autumn.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
