Allium ‘Art’ is a relatively new and unusual variety, looking a little unexciting until the flowers burst from the green buds like fireworks. Allium scorodoprasum is also known as the sand leek and originates from Europe and the Middle East.
Care: plant 5-10cm deep from September to February, adding grit to heavy or poorly-drained soil. Will do best in full sun.
