Allium caeruleum is a very striking allium that grows approx 60cms tall and as such is also very suited for cut flower. The flowers are a sky blue producing a lovely ball effect when fully opened.
Alliums are superb for bees and butterflies and will naturalise very well in most soils that are well drained. Feed with bone meal or similar during the leaf and flowering stage to ensure future good growth and performance. Alliums perform very well with early flowering perennials. Do not plant in soils that have been freshly manured. Cultivate the soi to a depth of 15cms and plant bulbs 10cms deep and 8cms apart.
