Allium ‘Gladiator’ produces purple flowers with hues of lavender on a large flower head. The lavender flowers blend well with most shades of pink, as well as darker purples.
Standing on strong stems, the Allium Gladiator are great planted in clumps or groups, and are particularly excellent planted with perennial plants and grasses. They are also fantastic pollinators – sit back and watch the bees, butterflies and other insects enjoy these 20cm diameter blooms.
These bulbs are best planted 20-30cm apart from one another to ensure that the flowers do not get over-crowded when they bloom. Ensure the bulbs are 15cm deep in fertile soil that is not susceptible to getting waterlogged.
