Product Description

Reaching 30-36 inches in height, Purple Sensation is one of the taller alliums and definitely an attention grabber anywhere you plant it with its bright, lilac-purple flowers swaying atop tall stems. Purple Sensation naturalizes easily once it's established and even thrives in poor soil. Beneficial pollinators love it, but thankfully deer leave it alone. Allium aflatunense 'Purple Sensation'
