A Purple Dream of Sensational Allium

  • Earliest Large-Allium to Bloom
  • Heirloom Variety
  • Provide Attractive Foliage
  • Great in Containers

What's the latest sensation in the allium world? The Purple Sensation Allium is back on the scene and remains an easy-to-grow purple dream. This heirloom ornamental allium may not be the biggest, tallest, or showiest but it has unsurpassable merit of its own.

Before the Globemaster has a chance to bloom, the Purple Sensation is shining bright and lighting up the garden. Its flamboyant ball of flowers and brilliant orchid-purple florets really come alive against the sky.

This fun allium isn't just appreciated for its long-lasting blooms, many gardeners appreciate its heart-shaped broad leaves that look similar to a hosta's.

This joyous and exciting plant is often considered more versatile than the other large alliums. Use three Purple Sensations as a one-of-a-kind bouquet or flower arrangement. They also make a perfect purple focal point when planted as a middle border or in a cottage garden.

Pair your Purple Sensations with other spring and summer blooms. They look great with iris, fritillaria, and other assorted flowers that come in a wide array of heights and colors.

The Purple Sensation Allium blooms in early spring and it will grace your garden with color for several weeks. And once the blooms fade, its spunky seedhead remains.

These tall, strong plants are sure to make a buzz when they bloom in spring. Don't miss your opportunity to create a sensation with your very own Purple Sensation Alliums. Order your Purple Sensation Alliums now!

We will ship your bulbs based on the correct planting time for your area.
