Delivered to you from November
A product of the cross between A. Purple Sensation (from which it gains its height and deeper colouration) and A. cristophii (which gives it the open structure) with heads about 6” (15cm) across. With such popular and eminent parentage these should be superior and indeed they performed superbly well in the Allium trials at Wisley and were judged “the best in the trial”.
Cover the Allium Purple Rain bulb with 3-4" (8-10cm) of soil in a sunny situation and a well drained soil. Allow 6" (15cm) between bulbs and plant without excessive regimentation.
Flowering June (later than Purple Sensation)
Height 34” (85cm)
