Description

Tiny, perfectly formed, blush pink florets float on wiry, bright green stems, to form the pretty open-structured umbels that make Allium roseum such a delightful spring flower. Actually a form of the culinary delicacy wild garlic, the flowers float over lush, low-growing green foliage, creating beautiful contrast—meaning it is certainly worth growing for its beauty alone. Bees and butterflies will come flocking when the flowers of the pollinator-friendly Allium roseum, commonly known as rosy-flowered garlic, burst open. 

Blooming in late May, Allium roseum is a valuable addition to any garden, usefully bridging the gap between the last spring bulbs and the first summer perennials. Native to the Mediterranean region, plant it in a fertile but well-drained gritty or sandy soil - with full sun for the best flowering display.

The stunning Allium roseum flowers will add a splash of vibrant colour to your garden. Plant it in well-drained soil and enjoy its blooms from late spring to early summer. Its long-lasting blooms make it an ideal choice for cut flower arrangements. Not only is it a vibrant addition to any garden, but it's also drought-tolerant, making it a great choice for those who don't want to spend a lot of time tending to their plants. Let Allium roseum bring life to your garden!
