Allium 'Purple Sensation' | Ornamental Onion | Pack of 20 Flower Bulbs

Add a flourish to a border with this sensational Ornamental Onion...

Allium 'Purple Sensation' is a classic flowering bulb, admired for its rounded clusters of purple blooms that float atop their sturdy stems. Able to exceed a metre in height, this variety is perfect for adding verticality to a mixed border. Unlike the advice we give for some of our smaller bulbs, when planting your Allium bulbs, it is best to scatter them amongst other plants across a border, rather than more closely together.

Growing Advice

It is best to make sure that you plant at the distance and depth recommended. If too deep, the bulb may rot and the shoots emerge late. If too shallow, the bulb may emerge unevenly and have spindly growth.

Once shoots emerge, water thoroughly and regularly to encourage their growth. Fertiliser isn't essential, but it will help blooms to look their best. Simply apply a slow release fertiliser upon planting, or alternatively apply liquid fertiliser once the growing season begins.
