“Allium Giganteum” Is Native To Central Asia And Is Perhaps The Tallest Of The Flowering Alliums. “Allium Giganteum” Is A Horticultural Amazon That Catches The Eye Of Even Non-Gardeners. Blossoms The Size Of Grapefruits Sway Atop Lofty Stems Which Are Up To 120 Cms Tall With Broad Basal Leaves, Which Are Withered At Flowering Time, At About The Time The Dutch Iris Bloom.

Dramatic As A Back Of The Border Groupings, Giganteums Also Attract Butterflies. Each Globe Contains 50 Or More Star-Shaped Flowers With Prominent Stamens.

“Allium Giganteum” 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. 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. Lift And Divide The Bulbs Only If They Become Crowded.
