Delivered to you from September 2018
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 5-6” (15cm) across. With such popular and eminent parentage these are evidently superior and will become increasingly popular themselves. I am not sure whether the person who named it was a Prince fan but surely it is more than a coincidence?
Cover the Allium Purple Rain bulb with 3-4" (7.5-10 cm) of soil in a sunny situation and a well drained soil. Allow 6" (15 cm) between bulbs and plant without excessive regimentation.
Flowering June (later than Purple Sensation)
Height 38” (100cm)
