Allium Giganteum (ornamental onion bulbs) | 1 Bulb Per Pack

Like its name suggests, Allium ‘Giganteum’ is a giant among alliums, being one of the tallest currently available.

PALL005 Price:  £3.95

Like its name suggests, Allium ‘Giganteum’ is a giant among alliums, being one of the tallest currently available. It grows to the heady heights of 120cms and is loved by small children and adults alike. Clusters of tiny star-shaped deep pinky/lilac flowers make up the spherical heads (umbels) of Allium ‘Giganteum’ and are perfect if you want to create height and drama to your borders in late spring.  Beneficial pollinating insects and bees are attracted to Alliums and you can watch them buzzing from one tiny flower to the next. If you leave the seed heads on they are brilliant used dried in Christmas floral displays.                                                                                                                              

Product Code:  PALL005

Plant at a depth of 15cms and space at least 20cms apart to avoid overcrowding the large flower heads.  Likes to be in full sun in soil that is not waterlogged so a free draining soil is preferable. 

The plants are long-lived and if you plant the bulbs deeply to begin with they will flower for many years. The curled strappy leaves appear first before the flower stalk. Do not be tempted to cut away the leaves as they are helping to put the goodness into next year’s flowers.  Once the foliage has turned brown and died back, you can remove them.

NOTE – Ornamental onions are harmful if eaten.
