Persian Blue Allium Description

The Persian Blue flower is a showstopper in bouquets, borders or naturalized landscapes.
Imposing blooms come highly recommended by our Dutch garden experts. The perfect spheres of this blue allium are actually hundreds of clustered, starshaped, purple-blue florets. They create a dazzling effect as they appear to rise almost overnight, adding a unique flower colour to the landscape. And like all alliums, they drive rodents, aphids and even slugs away from the garden! Alliums are not available in ID and WA. This blue allium flower is also called Allium aflatunense 'Purple Sensation'

Do Blue Allium Bulbs Multiply?

Like many other bulbs, purple allium bulbs and blue allium bulbs multiply underground. Plan to divide these bulbs every few years to avoid overcrowding, which can lead to weakened blooms. When you want to divide allium, wait until fall when the foliage of the plants has died back, so as not to damage the plant. Use a shovel or spade to gently dig up the bulb--you'll be reminded that allium are members of the onion family, as these bulbs look very onion-esque. Small bulblets will surround the parent bulb. Gently separate those bulblets by hand. Then, replant both the parent bulb and the bulblets, just like you planted your alliums when you first set them into the ground.
Remember, the best time to plant allium, whether for the first time or after division, is in the autumn. These plants require a cold period in order to sprout in springtime, so give them what they need by planting in fall. Plant after the ground has cooled, but before the first hard frost.
