Allium Purple Rain


3 bulbs in a 17cm pot
Bulbs 50p each

A rich, deep purple variety with 100cm stems. This is a beautiful allium that will look well soaring up at the back of the border. Its attractive curled green leaves will wither before the flowers appear in early summer so we recommend accompanying them with low-growing perennials to provide filling foliage over the base areas.

Dense heads of deep purple. Flower a little later than other alliums in June/July. Height 80-100cm

Suitable for containers

2 in stock



Planting & Growing Instructions

Plant in fertile well drained soil at approx 10cm-15cm apart and at a depth of roughly 3 to 4 times the size of the bulb.

Cultural Instructions

Leave untouched for a number of years until the bulbs have multiplied to the extent that flowering potential is impeded.

Planting in containers: Place a layer of stones or gravel at the bottom of a large container in order to aid drainage. Fill the container with bulb compost to approximately 20cm below the rim. Place bulbs approximately 5-8cm apart ensuring the tips face up. Fill the container to about 3cm from the top of the rim making sure to firm the compost between the bulbs. Water just enough to settle the soil.
