ALLIUM BASALTICUM 'SILVER SPRING'
One of the most alluring alliums, both in fragrance and design, this is a priceless gem. The sizeable spherical flower balls are composed of smaller star shaped white flowers, each with a deep red heart that glows like a ruby. Pictures don’t really do it justice, clustered together in an umbel, the blooms will make an unforgettable sight in your flower bed.
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.
