Densely filled heads in pale purple the size of a grapefruit top each tall bare stem. A central Asian species requiring well-drained soils and a sunny site, by the time that they flower the leaves have mostly withered away. Its name is a reference to its impressive height rather than to an enormous flower.. A soft seed head remains after flowering.
Plant Allium giganteum bulbs 4-5" (10-12cm) deep in a sunny spot in well drained soils where the withering leaves will be camouflaged by other plants in early summer.
Flowers Late June/July
Height 48+" (120+cm)
