Purple Sensation Allium

Late-spring bloomer creates a splash with its unique form and brilliant lilac-purple, 4 in. flower heads.

Can also be grown in a container. Naturalizes well. The flowers also look great as a cut flower in fresh and dried arrangements. Plant in full sun to partial shade. Deer tend to avoid. Zones 3-8. 10-12 cm bulbs.
