Planted last year and was terrific performer garnering a lot of inquiries from visitors. Nice wow factor and beautiful color. Did not give a 5 because one plant came up but did not bloom.

These flowers are more blue than they are purple. Everyone sees color so differently. On a color wheel, this color pushes to the blue side much more than the red side (more purple). These are one of nature's loveliest colors.

All that were planted bloomed, but the flowers were not as full as expected. Also, as pointed out by another reviewer, they are not blue, but purple.
Allium Love

Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon
Planted in same bed as hostas, the allium came up first and were blooming by the time the hostas emerged, so the allium heads created a striking contrast to the low-growing hosta leaves. Got many comments & compliments on them. However, I must agree with previous reviewers, the color was purple, not the deep blue depicted in the photo. Still lovely! Now that the flower heads are spent, I am drying them for an indoor arrangement, so I can continue to enjoy them way past their bloom time.
LOVELY!!!

These are wonderful allium...and are a blue but not as vivid as the photos shown. I think some of this has to do with the soil nutrients...my other flowers are not quite the colors described/shown with most suppliers, but Breck's seems to be the truest. ;0) I love them.

In our more acidic (amended) clay soil, this allium is on the purple side of blue, as many have commented. Planted last fall, this spring each bulb produced several blooms from 18 to 26 inches high with a full globe of florets. They were a show stopper just when my daffs started to fade. Dried half a dozen to add to my dried hydrangea arrangement for a year-long enjoyment in the house. This is a great bulb!!
FANTASTIC!

Those of you complaining about the color should read the description - it says "purple-blue" - you can't go by a catalog print on paper or web site as that will be variable. This is a great plant to grow with yellows and oranges, or with the pink/blue and white pallet. I have mine up against an oranged stained rock behind it. And deer DO NOT eat allium family of plants.
Purple, but Lovely

These allium are so much fun! However, they are clearly purple, not blue. I am ordering them for the third year in a row, beause they are so unique.

It's purple and it sparkles in my garden. I was not expecting the large blooms I got. I wish I had ordered 3X as many and I will this Fall. I plan on putting them in all of my gardens :)

These are the common purple sensation alliums found in garden centers every where. Lovely purple flowers but don't pay extra thinking that these flowers will be the only depicted.
What a lovely flower!

Persian Blue is my first encounter with alliums. All 25 came up and stayed in bloom for (no joke) 4 weeks; and then they maintain my attention as their blooms dry to spikey globes. Question though: Is this a sterile plant or do they multiply?
