These spring bulbs are drumstick-shaped, with an egg-like flower head that changes top to bottom from light green buds to deep purple-red flowers.

Allium ‘Sphaerocephalon’ has a striking egg-shaped flower head that starts with light green buds that then mature into deep pink-red and eventually blooms into delicate little flowers in late summer.

These bulbs are best suited to being planted with mixed perennials in a sun-trapped border or scattered amongst a graveled area of the garden. They also work wonderfully grown in a rock garden or open field, in a pot on a sunny patio, or cut and used in a vase indoors. Be aware that these flowers bloom later than most Alliums, in July and August as opposed to June time.

A suggestion would be to plant these bulbs around 8cm deep in natural drifts.
