Allium nigrum (ornamental onion)

Allium nigrum (ornamental onion) £5.99
Position: full sun Soil: fertile, well-drained soil Rate of growth: fast-growing Flowering period: May to June Flower colour: white Other features: grey-green leaves Hardiness: fully hardy The grey-green leaves of this ornamental onion generally have started to die back when the flowers emerge in early summer. These sit on tall, sturdy stems forming flattish clusters that create a striking silhouette. Each creamy-white to pale lavender flower has a pronounced ovary at its heart, which looks a little like a green pearl, nestled in the centre. Garden care: Avoid excessive mositure from late summer when they become dormant. Over-large clumps can be lifted and divided in autumn or spring.
