Product Information

A terrific, award-winning variety of Allium which will flower year after year with globes of eye-catching violet!

Allium 'Violet Beauty' produces round heads of dazzling violet stars which mix easily with other shades of blue and purple in the garden. The large, rich purple blooms can reach around 10cm in diameter, and unlike many alliums, have a subtle, sweet fragrance.

Perfect for patio pots or planted in drifts in borders, theyíll provide real spring delight! Whatís more, the flowers are loved by bees and butterflies so are perfect if youíre looking to bring wildlife into your garden or help to encourage pollination. The blooms are long lasting and the seed heads that follow are equally lovely. Both are superb in floral arrangements and with so many bulbs included here, you will have a good supply for cut blooms AND garden decoration!

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, and itís also recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators'.

Supplied as a pack of 50 bulbs, size 7+ ready to plant out in autumn.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Allium:

  • 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.
