Description

This is one of the tallest and most splendid of the allium species,the ball-shaped flower consisting of more than one hundred small flowers, the entire football-sized head having a diameter of at least 8 inches. The impressive, long-lasting blooms are a good source for cut flowers and dried arrangements. Plants are completely hardy and clumps get bigger year after year!

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
