Allium Aflatunense Purple Sensation

(23 reviews) Write a Review

There's no better allium for bridging the season from spring bulbs to early summer perennials. Purple Sensation's perfectly round, 4"  globes are violet-purple with sparkles of lavender and pink. The slender, 24 to 30" stems are sturdy yet graceful. Flowers are long-lasting and nice in bouquets. Returns year after year.

    My Allium bulbs are now coming up! I have about 8 that are now blooming and more to come! Our weather is still around 40 degrees at night which is slowing down their growth but I am so excited about them growing to full size!

    The Allium Purple Sensation were a great addition to my gardens this year. They added a new dimension, height, and color to my spring garden. I used them in different areas to bookmark the garden beds and walkways and they almost acted as a gateway into new areas of the garden. They even look really cool after flowering! See attached pic. I was also very happy that they survived through some unexpected late hard freezes!

    Mine are just now blooming. Only 1 is fully open. After my 1st year of growing these beauties I ordered a lot. I live out in the country, so I planted them in bunches in front of some of our gorgeous Ponderosa Pines. Once they are all in bloom, they will be beautiful and a welcome sight when we drive up our long driveway. I highly recommend them. I also planted 3 giant alliums, that are getting ready to bloom in a couple weeks, I can hardly wait.

    Posted by Matthew S. on Jun 17th 2020

    These allium are wonderful in the garden. All of the bulbs grew quite large, which for me is rare. I usually have one or two small or non-existent bulbs. Beautiful purple hues and the bumblebees love them. Longer lasting than allium I have had in the past. I highly recommend these bulbs, you won't be disappointed. I even had one in the shade bloom quite full and almost full sized.

    Allium makes a statement in a spring-early summer garden. Being tall and unusual they stand out.
