Allium bulb names

This question was asked by
Barbara E – 

HI, I bought a number of allium bulbs at your stall in malvern and had a chat about growing, with some great advice thank you. Now, I have no idea what species they are !! I know one is allium schubertii, but no idea of the rest. I think I bought some of all your offerings. 4 types large bulbs and 10 small bulbs. Would you be kind enough to let me know which ones you were selling please. I can then Google to see what I can look forward to next spring. Thank you. Hope you had a good show – we certainly enjoyed it.

Good morning,
Sorry for the delay in replying. The alliums we had for sale at Malvern flower show were:

Allium Schubertii (harts1115)

Allium Gladiator (harts1110)

Allium Purple Sensation (harts1114)

Allium Globemaster (harts1111)

Glad you enjoyed the Show!

Hi. I’m interested in buying your alliums. However I’m confused by colours as whenever I find photos on the internet they always look different even for the same species/type. I’m interested in Gladiator or Ambassador. Could you point me in the direction of accurate photos of their colours? Thanks!

Oh goodness, good question! It is very to hard to tell from the different variants of cameras used to photograph the alliums and the change of colour projection from computer screens to smart devices. Both are equally nice alliums if that helps. I have Allium Globemaster in my garden and they are just so majestic and a vibrant pinky/purple… like the image of Loraine Hart with the huge Globemaster on our website. See attached.
