Description


Allium Mercurius, the perfect bulb for adding architectural interest to your borders and containers. Many small, violet-pink blooms pack tightly to form hemispheric clusters up to 12cm across. Held on wiry stems, reaching a height of approximately 80cm, Allium Mercurius is loved by our pollinating friends in late spring and early summer. Excellent planted in bold drifts, where the drought tolerant bulbs will happily naturalise. Allium were once known for their medical, culinary, and aphrodisiac qualities, the foliage emits a slightly oniony fragrance when crushed. Nowadays alliums are a favourite in RHS Show Gardens and we think that no garden should be without at least one. Allium are both deer and rabbit resistant and look incredible when used as cut flowers, lasting well in a vase. Much loved by bees and butterflies, Allium Mercurius is drought tolerant and happy even in poor soils preferring well-drained soil in sun. A hardy bulbous perennial that can be left, undisturbed over winter to sprout again the following spring.
