Yes, I am trying A. Christophii and the one with the long name... Nectasporum sic..err. stuck - can't remember the rest! They are all in bud at the moment.

I'm pleased to hear that yours are out!

Dd, I could find the catalogue and see what I'm growing, but...where did I put it? LOL.

They are not round ones, they have bells that hang down. Oh, I forgot, I also have some much shorter pink ones in, and I put in some drumstick Alliums as well - just a few.

I had a mixed bag, so it will be very interesting, have got some peculiar plants growing in the border, very tall with mauve flowers, will post picture when the wind dies down.

Well these are huge, and I have clumps of them, they must be some sort of pretty weed, watch this space!!!

So pretty, the sunlight seems to be making it a lovely lilac colour.

Soft and pretty, they look so much like my Scabious that i have in my Wildfower garden for my Bees!!

Thanks - I planted a whole lot more last autumn - they do seem to be a reliable Allium - and badgers don't like them! Hooray! (They did try one - and spat it out.)
