The huge flower heads of Allium cristophii are made up of perfect star shaped flowers held out on a long stalk from the centre of the flower to form a perfect globe.
The flowers are a light purple with a slight metallic sheen.
Long after the flower finished the now stiff and woody seed head remains extending the season.
Allium cristophii originates in Turkey and central Asia, hence its love of dry sunny conditions.
