Allium Atropurpureum

£0.50

Delivery: From end August

Allium atropurpureum features small clusters of starry deep burgundy florets, gracefully held at the top of tall sturdy stems.

Native to the Balkans, this heirloom variety will bring character and structure to the late spring and early summer garden. Particularly eye-catching planted in bold groups, this drumstick allium will also look exquisite scattered amongst grasses and low-growing hardy perennials in sunny borders and wild meadows where it will happily naturalise. Reminiscent of fireworks frozen mid-explosion, its blooms are fabulous featured in fresh and dried flower bouquets; they are also magnets for pollinators!

Alliums and their decorative seedheads are a great way to bring interest to the autumn and winter garden, whilst also providing wildlife with a much needed source of food and shelter during this challenging time of the year. Last but not least, they offer the added benefit of being deer and rabbit resistant!
