Alliums are stunning eye-catching perennials grown for their slender stems and large globular flowers, which are made up of small star shaped flowers. They start with green strap like foliage that bears the strong smell of onions. As soon as the flower stems start to form the leaves start looking a little ugly, so plant among other perennials to disguise them. The flowers then take over and look fabulous for a good period of spring to early summer.
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.
