Allium Cristophii (Albopilosum) 12/14 cm Bulb


Delivery: End Aug to Feb

Allium cristophii features large spherical heads loosely packed with small starry lilac florets with a metallic sheen, gracefully held at the top of sturdy stems.

Also known as Star of Persia or allium albopilosum, this heirloom variety will make a statement in the late spring and early summer garden. Particularly striking planted in bold groups, this recipient of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit will also look spectacular naturalised amongst grasses and low-growing hardy perennials in sunny borders and wild meadows. Reminiscent of fireworks captured 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!
