Allium ‘Purple Sensation’

Allium ‘Purple Sensation’ has vivid rose-purple 4-5” globes of petite flowers that burst into life in late spring. These gorgeous blooms return year after year for a low-maintenance landscape masterpiece! This perennial will typically grow to be about 36” tall, and its short basal leaves will begin to die down by flowering time. These alliums are perfect for a sunny border and make beautiful additions to cut bouquets! They are also deer resistant.

Alliums are bulbous herbaceous perennials with an onion or garlic scent, making them deer resistant. Plant your allium bulbs in the fall. They are easily grown in average, medium-wet, well-drained soils in full sun. We also recommend choosing a location that is sheltered from strong winds.

  • Deer resistant
  • Low maintenance
  • Perfect for borders
