Allium beesianum Hort
Product Details

This is very close to the true species but we feel that the shape of the petal is not quite as rounded at the tips as it should be and also maybe a little darker in the shade of blue.

. 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 grass like 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 sky-blue colour and numerous are borne in each head. A good species for troughs etc where its size will not impose.
