Why We Love It

RHS Award winner.

Ideal for cut and dried flowers.

Pollinator friendly.

Allium 'Purple Sensation' is a perennial with a bold garlic-like aroma. During summer it develops purple floral spheres that emerge from thin green stems reaching approximately 90 cm in height.

Alliums will grow in a wide range of soils provided there is good drainage. They like sunshine but the flowers will last longer in partial shade.

Valuable for planting in groups in borders or for naturalising (flowering for year after year).

Excellent, long lasting cut flower. Plant taller varieties to the rear of borders.

Flowers can be used for dried arrangements.

Planting Calendar

Plant in September, October, November.

Flowers in May, June.
