Allium hollandicum 'Purple Sensation' is a stunning vivid purple flowering allium and one of the most popular cottage garden style flowers. Spherical flower heads 8cm wide hold masses of star shaped flowers on 80/90cm stems. These alliums make a great addition to any border and are relatively early flowering so add a lovely touch of colour to the end of May border. We suggest planting them in clumps from where they will multiply and naturalise year after year.
Alliums are also a great source of pollen and will be very popular with bees and other pollinating insects.
