Allium Graceful Beauty will attract bees and other pollinators to your garden or patio. Each stem is topped by a ball of large white star-shaped flowers, with a pink stripe on the petals, which seem to burst from the top of the stem like a firework. Ideal for borders or pots, the flowers would also make an amazing addition to floral arrangements indoors. These bulbs will burst into flower in late spring or early summer, enjoying either full sun in particular.
Distinctive purple stamens

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
