Allium His Excellency 4 Litre Pot

3 bulbs to the pot. A beautiful spring display
Alliums are stunning eye-catching perennials with their slender stems and large globular flowers which are made up of small star shaped flowers. They have large strap like foliage that bears the strong smell of onions
To plant onions they like all soil types, if you are on heavy soil then add grit to the area beforehand and prefer full sun if possible.
If you are using these as cut flowers, to leave a good amount of foliage on the plant, to give the bulb a chance of making enough food to survive the winter.
Also, when the foliage starts to turn brown it is best to leave this alone until the whole plant has died back. As this is the time, they are making the food, if you do get tempted to remove the foliage early then you may not get flowers the next year.
Allium His Excellency is a bulbous perennial with large strap like pale grey green basal leaves which wither before flowering. In summer bears dense ball shaped pink to purple flowers, 6 inches across. Height 90-120cm.
