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.

Bees, other pollinators and butterflies love the smell and taste of Allium Summer Drummer, while rodents and deer tend to avoid it!
