Allium karataviense can reach 50 cm in height, not the tallest of the Alliums. This little gem of a herbaceous perennial has broad, pale grey-blue paired leaves at the base, and as if that isn't exctiting enough, karataviense leaves sport a purple tinge above and beneath. Perhaps the stars of the show are the star-shaped, pinkish-white flowers, held aloft by leafless stems that will grace the air above your border. Each delicate flower is finely balanced on a short stalk within the spherical cluster, a true beauty.
Planting tips: Plant these bulbs in clusters and add grit to the soil, Alliums do not like being waterlogged.
