AGM. This is one of our most popular Alliums and one of the best for general planting where it will natralise into clumps. It has dense round heads of magenta-purple flowers. The strap-like green leaves wither as the flower develops. Jun-Jul. H90cm S30cm.
For any good, well-drained soil in full sun. Plant it in drifts through early flowering perennials such as catmint or one of the hardy geraniums or combine it with Iris germanica 'Sable' and Viola 'Inverurie Beauty' for wonderfully intense splash of colour.
Macplants are central/southern Scotland's largest growers of herbaceous perennials, alpines, ferns and ornamental grasses. We have our plant centre open to the public in East Lothian, close to Edinburgh and we also supply a diverse range of trade clients both in the landscape and garden centre sectors.
We grow a large range of plants including many interesting and unusual varieties not usually seen for sale. Amongst the many plants we grow are our highly praised autumn Gentians bred here by Dr Ian McNaughton and probably the largest range of Meconopsis cultivars found anywhere.
