Availability: Out of stock

Giant Glove Alliums, appearing in early summer, are the beloved darlings of every Chelsea Flower Show in recent memory, and with good reason! They are elegant, colourful and provide a wonderful contrast of form in mixed herbaceous borders. These Giant Globe Alliums provide a spectacular form of giant mauve and white globe allium flowers that that follow on from Allium hollandicum 'Purple Sensation' in the flowering season, getting bigger and better every year.

Featuring the varieties Gladiator, Mount Everest and Mars, Alliums such as these are also suited to modern plantings as well as the more traditional, the deep colour adds depth to many schemes. Alliums will also hold attention long after they have faded with their structural seed heads. How about cutting a few in full bloom or when the heads have faded for dramatic floral arrangements?

Alliums are one of the best plants for adding variety of form and colour to borders and mixed beds, with metallic-purple blooms from mid-May onwards, the large spherical balls of blooms, which can grow up to 15cms across, appear atop of sturdy 80cm tall stalks that soar up from a base of broad-leaved foliage. Each flower head is made up of numerous star-shaped violet flowers. 

They will look great in pots and planters, but can also be used to great effect in garden beds and borders in drifts or groups, soaring above the foliage of lower growing plants when in full bloom.

Super Top Sized bulbs supplied.

Plant in fertile well drained soil at approx 10cm-15cm apart and at a depth of roughly 3 to 4 times the size of the bulb.
