These terrific new varieties are available at a fraction of the usual price and are GUARANTEED to flower in spring 2018 and each year thereafter!
Usually the domain of the Dutch cut flower growers, we have secured this high quality stock of ‘Ping Pong’ and ‘Violet Beauty’ – the perfect contrasting mix and each collection contains 50 flowering sized bulbs of each!
Ping Pong emerges in late April with wonderful hooded buds that start of white with a soft blush when they first open, eventually turning green and holding their luscious colour for many weeks. Named because the flowers reach the approximate size of its namesake, reaching 3-4cm diameter, it will stand out perfectly among from your other Allium varieties.
Violet Beauty colour contrasts superbly, flowering at the same time, but producing larger rich-purple blooms that reach around 10cm in diameter. The added bonus is the soft fragrance that oozes from the blooms!
Perfect for patio pots or planted in drifts in borders, they’ll provide real spring delight! What’s more, the flowers are loved by bees and butterflies so are perfect if you’re looking to bring wildlife into your garden or help to encourage pollination. The blooms are long lasting and the seed heads that follow are equally lovely. Both are superb in floral arrangements and with so many bulbs included here, you will have a good supply for cut blooms AND garden decoration!
Totally winter hardy, once planted they will naturalise and produce a stunning display each year!
