The flower of Allium Atropurpureum has a unique deep purple-red colour that doesn’t appear very often in nature. This allium is originally from the Balkan and was introduced in the 1800’s. With its sturdy stem and a delightful, tightly packed cluster of star-shaped flowers allium truly is a unique flower. The flowers bloom between June and July and it reaches 60 cm in length. Unlike our other types of allium, the Atropurpureum naturalizes on its own.

Other information

  • First loosen the soil well where the allium bulbs will be planted. Then the soil is easier to work with.
  • Dig a hole and make sure it is 2 to 3 times as deep as the height of the bulbs.
  • For the distance between the bulbs, make sure it is 2 times the diameter of the bulbs.
  • Plant the flower bulbs in the hole with the pointed side facing up or with the root base facing down.
  • Cover the allium bulbs with soil and water them well.

Pre-orders can be placed until the first week of August, which will be shipped in the first half of September and delivered in October.
