Allium senescens Millenium - Amazing Summer Flowering Allium
Availability: In stock
This really is a beautiful allium, and one of our firm favourites. A chance find for us, we've sold it for years under it's botanical name 'senescens' and has now been picked up by the wider garden and plant trade going under the name 'Millennium' - about the time we first bought it to the market! It has proved to be a very well behaved plant, and provides great value and interest flowering for weeks on end in summer. It's highly attractive to bees and butterflies too.
Forming a tight clump, it will throw up numerous strong stems each around 60cms tall and topped with a head of soft purple-pink flowers. Alliums are the unsung hero's of every Chelsea flower show in recent memory, but with millennium, the flowers keep coming and going on over a very long period, months in fact, making this deserving of a place in any garden. It's even perfectly edible as other Alliums, and can be used as an interesting addition to your summer salads or a stir fry! Supplied in approx. 2-3 litre containers.
