Allium Purple Rain

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Huge flowerheads, up to 15cm across adorn slender straight stems on glamorous Allium ‘Purple Rain’.

A cross between Purple Sensation and Christophii, this dazzling cultivar has inherited the best qualities of both parents with an abundance of violet florets arranged in an interesting, open structure.   ‘Purple Rain’ has received a prestigious Award of Garden Merit from the RHS.

Tall stems make this variety excellent for cutting and using fresh in summer arrangements, and for drying and displaying as architectural seedheads.

Buds rocket up through the borders in late spring and burst into bloom during May and June. 

Bulbs look best grouped together near the middle or back of the border for a striking and colourful display.
