Allium neapolitanum, Allium cowanii or Neapolitan garlic produces a collection of perfectly white, star shaped flowers, floating on stems that grow up to 40cm tall. Leaves at the base of the stem are grass-like, this Allium prefers a sheltered spot in the garden.
Herbaceous bulbous perennials with the typical garlic scent of all Alliums, this will delight in almost any soil and reach its full height of o.5 metres within 5 years. A good flower for pollinators if left in borders of containers and they make a striking display when added to cut flowers.
Alliums look their best when planted in substantive clusters. Add grit when planting to avoid waterlogging.
