Later Lovelies

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - Gardening -

Flow­er­ing from May through July, or­na­men­tal onions – with their fuzzy rounded pur­ple-mauve flow­ers that look like lol­lipops atop slen­der stalks – will add a touch of stylish whimsy to your gar­den. Al­lium cristophii, which pro­duces a head like a giant sparkler, is one of the best and, even when the flow­ers fade, the skele­tal re­mains look cu­ri­ously strik­ing. To make a grander state­ment, plant al­li­ums in clus­ters of three or five and for best ef­fect, plant the va­ri­ety ‘Pur­ple Sen­sa­tion’ all along

your bor­der.
