These edible violet flowers attract bees and butterflies, and are often used in ornamental dry bouquets. It is native to Europe, Asia and North America, indeed it is the only species of allium native to both the New and the Old Worlds.
Sow seeds at any time, covering them very thinly with compost or grit, 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 pot 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.
