ALLIUM- MORE THAN A PURPLE GLOBE
We all know the purple globes within the Allium assortment, but there is more to the Allium than just the round shape and purple colours.
For instance, did you know that there is a special meaning attached to the Allium? By giving Allium you’ll say: “you are perfect and elegant”. Alliums also represent unity and patience.
The stately thick stems bearing flowers in the finest colours can be enjoyed for a very long time. Forever, in fact, if you dry them.
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
The Allium has many names: ornamental onion, flowering onion and bullet. At OZ Export we prefer the botanical name: Allium. Please use that name to search in our webshop.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ALLIUM?
The Ornamental Onions called Allium are available in many shapes and in the colours:
– White/ Ivories
The shapes differ as well. The best-known shape is the snowball-shaped inflorescences. Some have sprits that gives the globe a fireworks-like effect. Others have an onion shaped head. They all have one thing in common: they all have those beautiful bare stems.
Allium Giganteum is the largest variety. The purple clusters of flowers can reach diameters of 15 cm of pure delight!
TIP: place the Alliums in water immediately after trimming the stems diagonally, this will keep the onion odour to a minimum.
INSPIRING ALLIUM CREATIONS
Summer is on her way and what better way than to use bright trendy colours like yellow?! The yellow will pop with the white, green and especially with the purple varieties.
