This year we are releasing a selection of stunning Alliums we have imported from Northern Europe. These are good strong vigorous bulbs ready for flowering. They want only a sunny spot in a region of warm dry summers and cold, frosty winters.
Easier to grow than the better known ‘Purple Sensation’, Allium jesdianum has flowered happily for many years in the dry garden here at Lambley. ‘Purple King’ carries 10cm diameter rich purple balls on 60cm tall stems during late spring.
A first Australian release of this new Allium hybrid which is becoming increasingly popular in Europe. It is more plum pudding shaped than ball shaped having a flat base to the rich purple flower head. Happy in any well drained spot which gets the winter and early spring sun. more... about Allium ‘Mercurius’
