Allium amethystinum 'Red Mohican' is also known as the Amethyst Allium. Either way this is surely the most confident member of our range of allium bulbs for sale. For a start it is not purple as are most alliums, but the deepest wine red. Something really rich and heavy - a Chateauneuf perhaps. And then there is the haircut. Mohicans do not suit everyone, but in this case the raise red crest tipped with tiny white florets is not only a talking point, but also good looking.
The slender but deceptively strong stems grow with the bud drooping but be patient, everything straightens out just before the buds open in June/July. The flower then continues to develop its crest, tuft or (as I am reliably informed) its 'can.
