This unique collection contains Alliums that are very special and worth their weight in gold. When most other spring flowers are fading Alliums begin to bloom and take centre stage in late spring. They're easy to grow and most can be used for cut or dried flower bouquets. Most importantly they are all adored by bees. So do something good for yourself and for those hard working bees and plant my All About Allium Collection!
All About Allium Collection includes:
20 Allium cowanii
This heirloom Allium has been in cultivation since the early 1800's. It is loved for its bright white clusters of flowers that appear atop its slender stems. Cowanii is deer, rabbit and rodent resistant and makes a delightful cut flower.
20 Allium sphaerocephalon
These are perhaps some of my all-time favourite Alliums. The deep burgundy colour is so attractive...perhaps this is one of the reasons why the bees are so drawn to them. The blooms last a very long time and even look attractive once they dry. I just love them!
15 Allium bulgaricum
Allium bulgaricum is so much fun to grow. At first glance you'll think that it is a Fritillaria but it is indeed one of the most unusual Alliums available. The adorable-looking, pendulant blooms hang in a graceful cluster at the top of its tall stems. Another great one for cut flowers.
10 Allium 'Cameleon'
Cameleon will actually change colour as it matures. Watch in wonder as the flower heads change from dark rose to white with rose-coloured veins. Very floriferous!
5 Allium 'Powder Puff'
No allium collection would be complete without a 'purple ball' variety! 'Powder Puff' lives up to its name by producing fluffy-looking, tennis ball-sized blooms atop shorter stems. It's a fantastic flower!
