A Purple Patch
The arrival of Alliums announces the start of the 'Purple Patch' at My Flower Patch. They really do signify the presence of bountiful flowers and a patch full of beautiful blooms. Here they are paired with purple Hesperis (Sweet Rocket), purple Toadflax, Foxgloves, pretty pink Allium unifolium, Knautia, grasses and some poppy seedheads.
Arranged in this way an Allium bouquet can have a country cottage type of look, or they can be arranged in a more modern way for a simple, sleek design.
