Purple allium picture

This purple allium picture was taken in our garden this spring. It's the first year we've tried to grow this plant and liked it so much we're planning on adding several more to the garden next year. Growing to about 3 feet high with a 4 inch to 5 inch flower this is a really unique garden plant. Blooming occurs in the springtime and the blooms last about 3 weeks.You shouldm't trim the foilage when the blooming is done, pretty much like what you do with your tulips and daffodils so your plants will bloom the following year. You would plant your bulbs in the fall to have them come up the following spring.

Plant Type - Perennial Light - Full sun to part shade
