If you’re looking to encourage bees and other pollinators to your garden, Allium caesium will happily contribute with its nectar-rich blooms and is the ideal candidate. Also known as 'Light Blue Garlic', this allium is dainty and slender with beautiful ball-like clusters of blue flowers which bees and butterflies just can’t resist. Create a profusion effect of pretty pompons by planting them in close groups or swathes.

Alliums are hardy, perennial and easy to grow, meaning you can enjoy them again and again every year with hardly any intervention. Just let Allium caesium (syn. Allium urceolatum) pop up and do their thing, bringing a wash of cool blue to your late spring combinations. If you fancy making a cottage-garden bouquet with them, pick a bunch and combine them with other informal late spring stems, it’ll look gorgeous!
