Allium Aflatunense

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



An extremely popular, heirloom species of Allium – ‘Aflatunense’ produces umbels of purple-lilac flowers in May.

The handsome violet globes sit proudly on straight stems up to 75cm tall in the border and are excellent for drying and using in seasonal arrangements.

Alliums are timeless, versatile plants which are as at home in a contemporary planting scheme, as they are in a traditional cottage garden border. 

Plant the bulbs in full sun and where left undisturbed, they will naturalise over time.  Underplant with textural perennials such as Hostas, Ferns, Heuchera and grasses which will hide any fading foliage.
