Pink Bubbles, so named because the flower heads contain, pink flowers and green 'bubbles'. If you look closely, at the picture, you will see that the 'Bubbles' are in fact tiny bulbs, which when fully formed can be taken off and planted up. Flowers from mid July onwards, height about 125 cm. Looks best when planted at the back of a border, because as the flowers open the leaves die back. The new shoots of Allium babingtonii resemble those of a Leek, indeed it is also know as Babinton's Leek and they are edible. New shoots often emerge in mid Winter, slowly in late spring the flower buds start forming, initially the tops of the stems often bend over (bit like a walking stick), but by the time the flowers open they are straight. Bulbs need planting before Winter sets in, mid September to mid October is perfect. When open the flowers attract a huge amount of Bee's and Butterflies to feed on them.
