Allium Violet Beauty has a slight sweet scent which makes them ideal for cutting for display in the home.The sturdy stem is topped by a ball of violet star-shaped flowers, making the head look like a firework exploding. 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.

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
