Allium Forelock is a beautiful elegant allium that will most certainly grace your garden. Before flowering the long stem bends over resembling that of a sheep farmer’s crook, and when ready to flower the stem straightens up reaching a magnificent height of 100-165 cm (5ft plus). We call them sky dots as the dark flowerheads sway gently in the wind.
