Description

If you like to stray from the ordinary then you will love this cool looking Allium 'Catweazle'. Rocking alternative looks with a wild, frizzy mop of green hair-like strands, this one is bound to make heads turn. Its all-over grassy green tone gives it a subtle edge which combines well with flowers of virtually any other colour, yet its chunky size and shameless, wacky appeal make it a great one to show off as a centerpiece. It’s fair to say this Allium has its own unique style, but it pulls it off perfectly!

Not only does this funny character look great in the garden, but it’s a brilliant cut flower too. Grow a big group of Allium 'Catweazle' so you can snip some stems to use in funky arrangements and they’ll reward you with a full and long-lasting display. Allium 'Catweazle' look particularly good combined with traditional purple alliums, be it in a cut flower arrangement or border planting scheme.
