Allium Extravaganza – Arundel Castle

May 14

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until Sunday, June 23, 2019


May 14

During May & June 2019 eruptions of pom-pom headed alliums will burst into bloom at Arundel Castle.

Exploding into flower with bright blooms towering over neighbouring plants, it’s easy to see why alliums are a firm favourite with the nation’s gardeners and nicknamed the ‘fireworks of gardening’.

The allium display can be seen throughout the Walled Gardens at Arundel Castle with over fourteen varieties on show, some of which may grow up to five feet high.

Head Gardener Martin Duncan explains: “This allium display brings a fresh new burst of colour and intrigue to the Collector Earl’s Gardens and will be the perfect follow up to the Tulip Festival. We have deliberately selected tall ornamental alliums to create the illusion of them bursting like fireworks above neighbouring flowers. With names like ‘Mount Everest’ it’s easy to understand the visual impact that these flowers will deliver and why they are such a talking point in the gardens”.

Just One thing ...
