Allium sphaerocephalon

Allium sphaerocephalon, named by Linnaeus 1753 is also known as The Roundheaded Leek.  A very inexpensive bulb which packs quite a punch! A summer flowering Allium with rather egg shaped heads, initially completely deep green, but beginning with a purple tip the whole head turns deep reddish purple, about 24" (60cm)tall. The intermediate state with purple and green is I think the most interesting. Insects love them and a small thicket is a great sight adding colour, movement and interest. The shape goes well with some of the similarly spiky Sea Hollies. 

Planting Instructions

Allium sphaerocephalon should be planted 3" (7.5 cm) deep in a sunny spot in well drained soil and about 3-4" (7.5-10 cm) apart. Such small bulbs are amazing in their abiliy of doing so well. Interplant them amongst your summer flowering plants to weave things together.
