The allium on the right is purple sensation. The one on the left is a new one bought last autumn and is also supposed to be purple sensation but it looks more like Christophii to me. Any ideas gardeners please? 🤔💜

Just had a look and that's a cross between purple sensation and christophii so yes, maybe. I'll wait until it's fully open, thanks Celina 💜 @cee

These were from one of their garden centres that's near us. Their bulbs are sold loose. I had the same problem with some tulips. I will buy pre-packed ones in future and not from them!!! 👍 @jpea
