Allium Atropurpureum

The name Atropurpureum comes from Latin meaning dark purple. Allium Atropurpureum is dark blackberry wine red, almost black, and the florets make loosely formed, half globes about 5cm across on 60cm stems. The colour is a good accent echoing the foliage of many other plants such as Sambucus nigra, some Heuchera and dark leaved Dahlia.

The blooms are long lasting with a pleasant fragrance and perfect for cutting. If you’re interested in attracting bees and butterflies, this plant is a delight, and you’ll be pleased to note that, like all allium bulbs, the squirrels are not keen on them.
