Allium Christophii is a compact variety of ornamental onion, with star-shaped flowers held in a globe cluster during early summer. The soft lilac flowers look like sparklers, and appear to have a metallic sheen to them. A great variety for adding some soft colour to a summer border. It also makes for a great cut flower.


A recipient of the RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit), for all round excellence in the garden, this hardy perennial bulb has a long flowering season. Plant in the middle of the border, so the umbrels can grow through other foliage such as paeonies; it can take over from tulips. Also ideally suited to gravel gardens or prairie style planting.
