Allium Purple Sensation

Allium Purple Sensation is one of the earliest Alliums to flower, normally around The RHS Chelsea Flower Show. It extends the Spring flowering season after the tulips are over into Summer. No garden would be complete without their striking shape and deep violet-purple colour running in drifts through herbaceous perennials or amongst ornamental grasses.  

Like all Alliums, bees love them, but they are generally unpalatable to deer, rabbits and squirrels. They will flower year after year and increase by seeding themselves, making this inexpensive and popular flower bulb incredibly good-value.
