Alliums

Rhino on the Lawn

This picture of our Rhinos along with a sea of Allium ‘Purple Sensation’ was taken by local, internationally renowned photographer Andrew Lawson and has become an iconic image of the Park.

We have also established plantings of various other Allium varieties, some with massive flower heads such as Allium ‘Globemaster’; while Allium ‘Summer drummer’ has smaller very dark heads held on 1.8m (6ft) tall stems. Late May and early June is the time to see our spectacular displays of these relatives to the humble onion.
