GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Please When Buying These Bulbs Make Sure That You Buy As Big A Bulb As Possible To Get Fantastic Blooms These Bulbs Are A Large Flowering Size Bulb

These Hardy Bulbs Are Becoming More And More Popular In Architectural And Formal Planting Plus The Long Lasting Flowers Are Ideal For Cutting

“Allium Christophii” Is Native To Turkey And Central Asia And Is Grown For Its Huge Globe-Like Clusters Of Shimmering Pink-Purple Starry Flowers, Which Rises Like A Flowery Lollipop From A Single Leafless Stem In Summer. The Large Strap-Like Grey-Green Leaves Emerge Slightly Before The Short-Stemmed Flower Appears. The Common Name References This As A Star And That’s Certainly The Case. “Star Of Persia” Blooms Are Immense, A Full 10-12 Inches Across Or About The Size Of A Soccer Ball.

“Allium Christophii” Has Received The Royal Horticultural Society’s Award Of Garden Merit (Agm) Which Is For Plants Of Outstanding Excellence.

If Your Garden Needs A Summer Focal Point Or You Get A Kick Out Of Stopping Traffic, Plant A Couple Of Dozen. As If That Wasn’t Reason Enough To Grow Them, These Flowers Dry Beautifully And Hold Their Form For Years. “Allium Christophii” Is A Parent Of The Famous “Globe Master”. Dried Flower Heads Are Strong Architectural Elements, In The Garden Or In A Tall, Simple Vase.

This Perennial Thrives In Fertile, Well Drained Soil In Full Sun. Plant It In The Autumn And Keep It Well Watered Through The Growing Season. The Strappy Basal Leaves Go Yellow Wither And Die Before Flowering Time. The Bulbs And Crushed Leaves Give Off The Familiar “Onion Smell” Lift And Divide The Bulbs Only If They Become Crowded. Grow “Christophii” As An Exclamation Point In The Garden. Be Sure To Plant Extra Since The Onion Works Well As Either A Fresh Or Dried Cut Flower. The Bulbs And Crushed Leaves Give Off The Familiar “Onion Smell”

“Allium Cristophii” Can Be Grown From Seed, But Can Take From 4-5 Years To Flower.

Large Bulbs Plant 20 CM Deep 20 CM Apart 25 Per Square Metre. Small Bulbs Plant 10 CM Deep 10 CM Apart 100 Per Square Metre
