Unlike other alliums, Allium caeruleum is a beautiful azure shade of blue. Also referred to as Allium azureum for its colour.
Leaves will sometimes wither by the time the flowers appear in late spring. Allium caeruleum will multiply in time if left undisturbed.
Care: plant in autumn 5 – 10cm deep. Add grit to heavy soils for drainage.
