Description

We are honoured to be the official supplier of one of the most famous and dedicated Allium cultivators in the Netherlands. Each year we visit the fields and select the most exclusive and rare Allium varieties available to offer these Allium bulbs to discerning gardeners like you. We can definitely say we are an Allium specialist. Our Abbey Road collection consists of Allium multibulbosum 'Nigrum' combined with the deep red Allium atropurpureum.

Allium multibulbosum 'Nigrum' is known for its unusual flower shape. The Allium flower spikes are being exposed from the stem rather than the ball shaped flower you normally would see with Alliums. 

Allium atropurpureum has smaller dark red to almost purple blooms. The dark red blooms are a true eye catcher.

Combining Allium Multibulbosum Nigrum and Allium atropurpureum creates a delicate and elegant look to your garden in the Early Summer. Excellent for naturalizing and bees & butterflies love them!

Each Abbey Road Collection package contains:

  • 5 x Allium multibulbosum 'Nigrum'
  • 5 x Allium atropurpureum

At Farmer Gracy we only supply top size Allium bulbs for optimal performance. Order your Allium Abbey Road Collection now.
