The stunning heads of alliums are sometimes described as "fireworks, frozen mid explosion" and certainly provide any garden with a dramatic touch.
Alliums do best in a sunny spot in your garden and look wonderful with their tall heads pushing through the foliage of your perennials. Spring and summer flowering alliums are also attractive to a wide variety of bees and other pollinators in the garden. Read our blog post on alliums for more information.
