Product Information

With enormous purple spherical flower heads standing tall on thin stems above deep-green leaves, 'Purple Sensation' will look simply stunning wherever you plant it in your garden.

What's more, you could cut and dry it for fantastic indoor displays and enjoy it for even longer.

Plant with white alliums, such as 'Mount Everest', for a wonderful contrast! Related to onions (but donít eat them!) they are very tough and hardy, ready for even the worst great British weather conditions.

Very easy to grow, and with very little care needed, they are the perfect plant for novice gardeners or for those with little time to dedicate - perfect results can be achieved by anyone.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

'Purple Sensation' is also recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators', with flowers that are sure to attract buzzing friends, including bees and butterflies, to any garden.

Supplied as a pack of 25 bulbs, size 10/12, ready to plant out from autumn.

Top Tips

Underplant with hostas, ferns or other low-growing, hardy perennial plants which will help to disguise the leaves as they fade.

Care Information

Planting advice for Alliums:

  • Find a location where the soil drains well and where they will receive full sun.
  • Plant allium bulbs in early to mid-autumn in a sheltered site to prevent the top-heavy flower spikes from getting blown over.
  • Dig over the soil and remove any weeds before planting.
  • Water well after planting, saturating the soil around the bulbs. Once established, alliums are drought tolerant.
  • In borders, plant bulbs in early autumn at a depth of about four times the diameter of the bulbs.
  • In containers, alliums will do well in deep pots with a good general-purpose potting compost with a handful of horticultural grit added. 

Aftercare advice for Alliums:

  • After planting, feed with a general-purpose feed such as our Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser.
  • Dried flower heads can be removed and made into indoor decorations or left on the plants to self-seed.
  • Divide alliums every three to four years or when the plants begin to look overcrowded and blooming decreases.
  • Lift the bulbs with a garden fork or spade and pull the bulbs apart.
  • Replant some in the original location and plant the remainder in a new location. 

Pruning and trimming advice for Alliums:

  • The leaves die down at flowering time, so itís best to plant alliums where this foliage is masked by that of other plants.
  • Avoid removing them while still green, as they provide the bulbs with energy for the following season.
