Allium 'Modern Art' 100 bulbs

Allium ‘Modern Art’ 100 bulbs £12.99
In those immortal words ‘And now for something completely different……’ And it certainly is. Alliums have been gaining in popularity for many years, and are bang on trend as versatile flowers for cutting, drying and garden decoration. And this fab variety ‘Modern Art’ is no exception. Like a modern sculpture, it adds fantastic interest to the late Spring and Summer garden. Reaching 1-1.2M, their squiggly random heads look like a sculptural explosion in a firework factory, darting off in one hundred directions at once. The detail is truly amazing, as they burst open from rather boring buds, to reveal their secrets. Totally hardy as a perennial, they will flower year after year, quickly emerging from underground when you had all but forgotten last year’s display. Cut them when they are open, and they dry really easily – spray them silver or gold for unique Christmas decorations too. What more do you need – get some ‘Modern Art’ in your garden – this Autumn’s must have bulb.
