Silver Spring Alliums

A white allium with purple (sometimes green) centres to the individual florets.We sell one white allium already - the oddly named Allium nigrum, but it is - barring the green seeds - pure white. Well Silver Spring is slightly different. Where it is white, it is possibly a better white than A. nigrum. But unlike its cousin, it is not pure anything. The centres of the florets are touched with deep red/purple and green and the seeds are black and prominent. It actually is a very striking flower indeed and a worthy member of our range of allium bulbs for sale

The flowers are carried, from the end of May into July, on sturdy stems of between 60-70 cms tall. As with all alliums, the downside is that leaves that were handsome in April are pretty manky by the end of May. So it pays to think about the planting a bit. May can be a slow time a herbaceous border, so underplanting these alliums with low growing perennials such as geraniums, sedums - even lambs ear - will hide the withering foliage and let your eye rest easy on one of the most beautiful flowers in your border.
