The flower head of this allium is one of the largest. It can reach up to 9 inches(23cm) and is very spectacular when fully opened. (see picture below).They are quite easy to grow from bulbs. I give it a rich, free draining, compost for best results. This picture shows the flower head just about to open. Before the flower head opens the leaves die down. It is not fully hardy, but frost hardy.
