Allium 'Purple Sensation' has been given an RHS Award of Garden Merit (AGM) for its value as a brilliant garden plant. It is a highly popular hybrid of Allium aflatunense with large dense heads of star-shaped, deep purple-violet flowers that are loved by bees.

'Purple Sensation' definitely lives up to its name; it never fails to make a big impact in any border! They are also excellent cut flowers.

Alliums make spectacular container plants and 'Purple Sensation'  looks extra special in formal schemes. Try combining them with formal hedging or topiary such as a 'mop-head' standard bay tree or clipped box balls for an ultra modern effect.

The allium leaves appear before the flowers and  die away quite quickly leaving the stems and flowers standing tall.

Allium bulbs will come back every year without being lifted and stored.

Plant the bulbs in autumn at roughly twice their depth into free draining soil in a sunny position. If you garden on heavy soil add some grit to the planting hole to help drainage.

Planting in drifts or in groups of fives and sevens makes the most of these showy bulbs.
