Enjoy the distinctive colour and striking form of Persian Blue Allium blooms. These bulbs produce stunning, lollipop-like flower heads in late spring. Each head carries hundreds of star-like blue-purple florets, forming perfectly round globes that sit atop thick stems reaching 34 to 36 inches tall. Appearing almost overnight, they attract beautiful butterflies and bees to your garden.
Hardy in zones 3 through 8, Allium aflatunese 'purple sensation' thrives in half sun to half shade, but full sun brings out spectacular blooms. Plant the bulbs in the fall, 6 inches deep and 4 to 6 inches apart in well-drained soil of any type. Let the spent flower heads stay on the plants and dry naturally to draw visiting birds in for a snack or remove the old flowers to prevent allium seeds from forming. A perennial, they will multiply with each passing year.
Persian Blue alliums make a beautiful addition to both fresh and dried arrangements. These blue allium bulbs are garden highlights that add colourful accents wherever you place them. Plant these deer- and pest-resistant bulbs toward the back of your flower borders for a dramatic backdrop or intersperse them with shorter perennials for a truly stunning display. Take your late spring garden up a notch with the dazzling blue-purple blossoms of these Dutch blue allium bulbs.
