Allium

What an amazing spectacle Allium schubertii will create in your garden! Each stunning bloom has two levels of deep rose-coloured flowers, one half which remains close to the stem and the other half will shoot out on longer stalks, making the head look even more like an exploding firework than other alliums. This variety carries the RHS 'Plant for Pollinators' mark and will make your garden a hive of activity with bees and other pollinators buzzing about. These bulbs will burst into flower in late spring to early summer, enjoying full sun and ready to catch everyone's eye. They are also beautiful as parts of vase or floral arrangements and can be dried for use as decoration. Schubertii holds the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

Giant flowers on short stems.

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
