Allium ‘Globemaster’ is evidently the largest Allium available with striking huge globes made up of clusters of tiny violet-purple, star-shaped flowers May to June. The flowers sit on sturdy stems approximately 100 cm above a neat clump of glossy green, strap-shaped leaves. The foliage has a strong onion scent, and it has quite long-lasting blooms. Attracts lots of pollinators. Undoubtedly, it creates a wonderful display if planted in masses. It reaches a maximum average height of 100 cm, spread 50 cm. In addition, it is excellent as a cut flower in either fresh or dried arrangements! This plant has been awarded The RHS Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Suggested Care: Allium ‘Globemaster’ should be planted in gritty, well-drained soils, positioned in a sunny position. Once the flowers begin to die off, you should cut them back to encourage new growth and foliage. If self-seeding is undesired, you should cut back the flowering stems once the flowers had become discoloured. This variety of Allium is drought tolerant.
Planting Instructions: Break up the soil well before planting and dig a hole twice the size of the pot. Remove plant from the pot by tapping the rim of the pot in ‘up side down’ position. Do not pull the plant from the pot. Firm soil after planting and water regularly for the first month.
