Allium Gladiator is one of the tallest alliums available and as such, is spotable above the others. This variety carries the RHS 'Plant for Pollinators' mark, and will attract bees and other pollinating insects to your garden or patio. The towering stem is topped by a giant ball of mauve-coloured star-shaped flowers which seem to burst from the top of the stem like a firework. Ideal for borders or a real spectacle in a pot, the flowers would also make an amazing addition to floral arrangements indoors. These bulbs will burst into flower in the mid to late spring, enjoying either full sun or partial shade. Gladiator has been given the RHS Garden of Merit award - it has certainly knocked the others out of the arena!

Giant flowers.

Plant Care & Advice

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 (leaving in for flowers year after year). Excellent, long lasting cut flower. Late planting in autumn prevents bulbs from making early shoots which can be damaged by frost. Plant taller varieties to the rear of borders. Flowers can be used for dried arrangements
