Description from Sarah Raven

Allium atropurpureum combines two of my favourite colours – crimson and purple – in one allium flower. I love the chunky showiness of this variety.

  • Genus: Allium
  • Variety: atropurpureum
  • Type: Deciduous
  • Soil Type: Well-drained but fertile, add grit on heavy soils
  • Site: Full sun Height: 70cm (28in)
  • Spacing: Plant 15cm deep, 20cm apart.
  • Hardiness: Hardy
  • Care tips: Remember these are very perennial so plant them somewhere permanent. Removing the tatty foliage doesn’t appear to affect the bulbs.
  • Flowers: ❀ Late May – June
  • For the vase: Add a drop of bleach to the water to minimise the oniony smell or change the water regularly. They will look good for up to 2 weeks without rearranging
