Reaching up to a mammoth height of 150cms, the gorgeous purple and white ball shaped flowers of Allium ‘Summer Drummer’ flowers from May-June, and often much later, giving structure and height to late spring border displays. It combines well with ornamental grasses when planted in drifts and also makes a wonderful cut flower, lasting for up to 2 weeks in a vase. The tiny flowers are highly scented with an oniony/garlic smell and attract bees, beneficial insects and butterflies/moths.
Product Code: PALL024
Plant the bulbs pointy side up in well-drained fertile soil in a sunny site.
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 it.
NOTE – Ornamental onions are harmful if eaten.
