Sometimes less is more. Allium Nigrum doesn't need bright colours to be the prettiest of the ball.

Allium Nigrum was discovered in the area around the Mediterranean in 1762. Admittedly, Allium Nigrum, “black allium” or black garlic, is a confusing name. While the colour of the ovary is black, the actual flower is white. The black of the ovary makes for a great contrast with the pure white leaves, and gives it an overall appearance of understated chic, or confident cool. Allium Nigrum really stands out and does a lot with a basic colour combination.

Allium Nigrum may reach up to 80 cm in height, with semi-spherical umbels that reach a diameter of 10 cm. All that combines into voluminous beauty that’s easy on the eyes, and easy to work with in decorations and bouquets.
