Allium christophii


Allium christophii (Allium christophii (Persian Onion))

I didn't know the height these would reach, so they are in the wrong position...however, I plunged them into the soil in their pots, so I can move them easily later!

Yes they certainly tower above most of the border plants, I bought a mixed bag of alliums 3 years ago and there was just one of this species, I think I may have lost it as there is no sign of it this year.

How tall does it get Spritz?

Disappointingly, only about 16 "?? My book says 12 - 24"...Not tall enough for where they are, to be seen properly.. I think Pp may have had a different one.

'Purple Sensation' would have been better there, mine seem to get taller and stand out more. But that lovely metallic colour goes so well with the Persicaria. I can't start moving everything around, can I? Magic wand needed! LOL.

The autumn will be here too soon and you will be able to move whatever you like. I think you should enjoy them where they are as they look wonderful anyway.
