    A variable plant, which produces very pretty, open clusters of pale to rich pink flowers above the strap-shaped foliage. Flowering in late spring or early summer, this ornamental onion is useful for bridging the gap, creating pockets of colour when there is often a bit of a lull in the garden. Plant it into patio pots, or create drifts through the front of the border where it will slowly spread to form good-sized colonies.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs 5 - 10cm deep and approximately 5 - 10cm apart. Avoid excessive mositure from late summer when they become dormant. Over-large clumps can be lifted and divided in autumn or spring.

These delicate flowers add a wonderful level of fine detail to cut flowers and look excellent at the front of a border.

Planted in a deep tub as part of a bulb and plant sandwich in harsh condition (south facing exposed roof garden) . Has done very well, with delightful flowers tinged with pink (apart from one interloper who is definitely not the same type of allium), filling the gap between spring and summer bloom.
