Allium Globemaster is an astonishing hybrid with great presence. Strong stems support a flower that is 8" (20cm) across in deep violet -purple and is extremely long lasting. Behind these initial flowers a second flush of flowers develop and push through so the flowering time is extensive. Bees and other insects love them and benefit from them. The wide leaves also persist longer into the summer resulting in a tidier plant, and one the insects love. The plants do not however form seed or a seedhead as they are sterile. We supply large bulbs, in the nature of things these will split to produce smaller flowers in the second year, and as these grow larger again the flower size will increase.
Allium Globemaster has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit because it has proved to be reliable in appropriate conditions and a good performing plant.
Plant the Allium Globemaster bulbs in a sunny situation in good, fertile, well drained soil, about 5-6" (12-15cm) deep and 18" (45cm) or more apart.
