Allium Purple Rain

Gosh - where to start? Purple Rain is a cross between two well-known alliums - Purple Sensation and Christophii. The first gives it the height and colour which make it so useful towards the back of a border which the second provides the flower size and structure. In decent conditions the blooms are open and about 15 cms in diameter.

The handsome green leaves wither (and are relatively unattractive) before the flowers appear in May/June. However, they are easily hidden with lower growing plants. Peonies spring to mind but drifts of tulips especially those that are brave oranges and yellows. Try Orange Brilliant or Hermitage while our Daydream Tulips also create a sensational contrast. Or for gentler effect, white tulips can be both subtle and stunning. Have a look at Spring Green or White Triumphator.

With its breeding and outstanding quality, Purple Rain will become one of the most popular alliums in the gardener's armoury. A brilliant addition to our range of alliums.
