Allium Jesdianum ‘Akbulak’
A tall allium which has large petals which are pointed at the end , crowding onto round umbels and resembing “exploding fireworks” of flowers. It is a very sought after architectural flower whose seed heads can be dried for floral work.
This allium does not set many seeds and therefore seeds are hard to source.
It is a tall stately allium up to 90 cm tall with large “exploding fireworks ” tennis ball shaped usually purple flower heads which appear in early spring, making it extremely valuable for early garden colour. Its handsome green seedheads are themselves decorative and will last into winter, making them valuable as dried flowers . It was collected from Uzbekistan near the Akbulak river, and occurs across the dry mountainous meadows of Central Asia . It needs good drainage and a dry summer rest.

Seed Raising Advice
Sow seeds at any time, covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep.Keep the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outside. Artificial heat is not needed and will prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing of the moist seed tray in winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until they are of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
