We are pleased to offer the true species here having tried to obtain this for many years only to find we have been supplied Allium cyaneum! (which we also offer). A smaller species of Allium with deep-apple green matte cylindrical leaves emerging in early spring from slender bulbs. These are very thin and almost grasslike in appearance. Flowers are dainty and held in loose clusters at the top of each stem which can reach up to 35 cms high. Each flower is composed of very narrow petals of a pure slaty sky-blue colour and numerous are borne in each head. A good species for troughs etc where its size will not impose. Rarely offered!
