Giant Allium (Allium giganteum) is the tallest of the large flowering allium with 4"-6" diameter, ball-shaped flowers. The Giant Allium adds a wonderful element to a garden and will even catch the eye of the non-gardeners! These huge flowers blossom the size of softballs with a gorgeous purple color and sway atop sturdy stems in late spring. These add great texture and look great when planted amongst other shorter plants.

  • Allium require full sun for the best blooms
  • Well drained soil is a must for allium bulbs
  • In heavy, clay and poorly drained soils amend the soil prior to planting. Amend your existing soil by incorporating a combination of top soil, compost, manure, and leaf mold.
  • Fertilize at planting with Hi Yield Bulb Food or for organic gardening use Bulb-Tone. Apply fertilizer at least 3” below the bottom of the bulbs so that the roots will get the most benefit from the fertilizer.
  • Plant allium bulbs 4-6” deep, with the old roots of the bulb touching the earth, the pointed end should be facing the sky.
  • Spacing will vary based on variety, refer to the Allium packaging for specifics. Plant allium in clusters or space throughout the garden for a neat geometric design element.
  • Immediately after planting, water the allium planting area. This helps to eliminate air pockets. After the initial planting bulbs do not require additional watering in fall or winter and prefer to be kept dry.
  • Apply a 2” layer of mulch in late fall.

Cons:
These are so much fun! I am officially in love with alliums for my “cottage style” garden. They add height, interest and intense color. I wish I could upload pictures. These were late spring blooming for me in mid-Virginia & lasted a good month and a half. I left them standing past their prime color because their dried form is also striking and they stayed standing for a full month and a half past bloom. I now have another allium variety in full flush.

I ordered 5 bulbs, 4 were good and 1 was moldy and decomposing. I planted them this fall so still have to wait and see the blooms yet.
