Description

One of the best of the flowering onions, this handsome, tall and easy plant has glaucous, very wide, striped, strap-shaped leaves. In May and June it opens dense, spherical, many-flowered umbels, up to four inches wide, of star-shaped, lilac-violet flowers. Few seeds collected.

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.
