Allium 'Hair'

Allium vineale or Allium 'Hair' is an atypical Allium, as you can see from the images. As with all Alliums, it is a bulbous, herbaceous perennial with the garlic scent typical of the species. This unusual Allium has an umbel formed of a 'hair-like' clump of grassy, tubular leaves. Around 4 cm wide with a contrasting purple centre, vineale is an unsung hero of the herbaceous border.

Plant Allium Hair in clusters to lend an air of the sublime to your border. The cylindrical leaves at the base of a stem that reaches up to a metre tall add to the gifts this plant brings to the garden.  So your Allium hair doesn't get waterlogged, add grit to the soil for best results.
