Allium sphaerocepalon

Allium sphaerocepalon - Packet picture

A fantastic Allium which sits proudly above other border plants. These didn’t actually flower until well into July, and the globes of flowers are loved by bees and other insects and stay around for many weeks.

It was a surprise additional and I would be keen to get more next year for further around the garden.
