Rich burgundy globes with crested tufts of tiny buds open to white florets to give the appearance of icy frost forming on the tips. Impressive height allows this statuesque beauty to stand watch over lower growing flowers and readily attracts attention. 2 bulbs per bag. Bulb size 10+cm.

Alliums flower in summer after most other bulbs are finished. These long-blooming beauties create excellent dried arrangements too.
