Description

Liven up your early-summer planting schemes with a raucous crowd of punky-looking Allium 'Red Mohican'. These quirky characters show up late to the gig, headlining with the very last of the Alliums between early to mid-summer. Their deep red flower heads make a bold statement as they sway on their tall, strong stems above the foliage of emerging summer perennials. If your style is to stray from the ordinary, Allium 'Red Mohican' brings a bit of bizarre fun to the garden. The added bonus is that they’re hardy, reliable and easy to grow.

With the very minimum of fuss, you’ll enjoy a brilliant turn out from perennial Allium 'Red Mohican' every year. They’re very easy to grow, simply plant the bulbs in autumn and leave them to it. The claret-coloured flower heads include some fine details, such as a dusting of white and yellow anthers below that unmistakable hairstyle comprised of a tuft of flowers at the top. Growing to a height of around 1m, Allium 'Red Mohican' are perfect for growing in groups or swathes through a border where they’ll kick-start summer with style.
