I really like the colour of purple alliums, and i've used them in garden borders that i've planted, since I first started designing with plants, but this year is the first time i've had a really decent display of Alliums in my garden.
up to this year, my favourite variety was Christophii
But it's been taken over this year by these great Allium Schubertii, which are currently gracing my front border, but are planted far too close together, and need to be moved for next year.
The only down side of Alliums is that by the time they are flowering, the foliage is all tattly, but I've got plans to plant even more this Autumn, and i'll be planting them through my Gaura, and Lavender so the foliage is hidden. Any suggestions for more varieties to look out for at the shows this summer?
