Growing to a height of up to 2.5m, Allium ‘Summer Drummer’ is just like a percussion beater for giants! Humming with late-summer interest, this jaw-dropping variety will really hit the mark in the garden, creating an effortlessly spectacular and long-lasting display of globe-like blooms on tall upright stems from August onwards. Alliums are known for being easy to grow and non-fussy, and Allium ‘Summer Drummer’ is no exception. Plant this star performer in a sunny spot and it’ll reward you with a repeat show year after year.

It’s particularly good for providing late-season interest, taking centre stage from mid-summer, injecting fresh colour to slowing planting schemes. Not only do they look fantastic, but their nectar-rich purple flowers attract pollinators like bees and butterflies to the garden too.

Allliums are really versatile and can sit well within contemporary gardens as well as cottage-style plantings. You can create a really spectacular display by combining late-flowering Allium ‘Summer Drummer’ with other tall or structural summer plants, like crocosmia, canna, dahlia or agapanthus.
