If you're looking for a different allium then try this unusual variety. The spherical wine-red flower heads of Allium Red Mohican are tipped with cream and held above them are tufts of wine-red flowers giving them their distinctive Mohican appearance. The stems can sometimes start off bent but they soon grow tall and straight.
Autumn Planting (Spring Flowering) bulbs are not available at present. They can be ordered from Mid May. In the meantime, why not add your favourites to your wishlist ready to transfer to your shopping basket later?
