The Allium Globemaster holds the largest flower-head out of all the alliums and will most definitely turn heads bringing a smile to all. They look fantastic on their own or planted in the herbaceous border. Bees and other pollinators are attracted to all alliums, but favour the giant alliums due to the sheer volume of small star-shaped blooms that produce this magnificent ball of colour.
