Description

Simply one of the most alluring alliums in fragrance and design, Allium 'Silver Spring' is a gem. This medium-height plant features white to pinkish-white flowers with six petals and deep red hearts that glow like rubies. Pictures don’t really do it justice, so you’ll have to try it for yourself to see just what a worthy garden plant it is. Clustered together in the umbel, the 'Silver Spring' blooms make an unforgettable sight in your flower bed.

By spacing the Allium 'Silver Spring' bulbs adequately in groups, you’ll have the ideal pattern. Give your lilies and roses a special honour guard with Allium 'Silver Spring', yet another example of the elegance that flowering onions provide.
