Delivered to you from September
Butterflies love these egg shaped heads (and at their peak they are about the same size). They emerge as tight deep green buds in June, turning purple from their tips through July and swaying in the summer breezes on long wiry stems. Woven through a summer border, often as rivers of colour, they visually ‘tie things together’. Easy and inexpensive for the effect that they provide, just do plant enough of them for a generous display. We always supply bigger bulbs than are generally available, ensuring that the flowering will be better as a result.
Allium sphaerocephalon bulbs should be planted 3" (8 cm) deep in a sunny spot in well drained soil and about 3-4" (8-10 cm) apart 10-15 per square foot. Such small bulbs are amazing in their ability of doing so well. Interplant them amongst your summer flowering plants to weave things together.
