Allium Schubertii. Hardy perennial. Flowers May-June. This plant is perfect for front borders or large pots and containers. Although the plant is quite low growing at 45cm in height, the flower-head is enormous and looks very much like a sparkler. When the plant has finished flowering, it dries out very nicely, at this point you can leave the plant in the garden as it looks equally as good as it did when it was in flower or you can use it as a dried cut flower in the home. Allium Schubertii also looks good with the Allium Christophii, which is also a low grower with a giant flower head.
