Described as an ornamental or flowering onion, the Allium Karataviense is a unique-shaped, herbaceous plant. From May to June, it produces star-shaped, white summer flowers that form in round clusters. And don't underestimate its short stems, as the flowerheads can reach the size of an orange.

Pollinators, such as butterflies love the flowers and seeds on this plant, so expect them to see them flock to your garden where this is grown. The Allium Karataviense is also excellent used in dried flower arrangements.

The Allium Karataviense likes full sun, and is one of the best Allium plants to be grown in pots and containers, making it ideal for urban spaces as well as lawn gardens. Make sure its soil is keep moist, not soggy. We recommend planting several of these plants together.

Jo's Top Tip

After flowering, the leaves on this plant may wilt, then by midsummer the plant goes underground. Don't panic, this is normal and it will appear again in spring.

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too.
