Giant allium - how many heads?!


I received some white giant allium plants yesterday, they’ve already got their leaves. Do each of these produce one head or multiple flowers?

I was looking to add into a planter but one flower might not look a bit strange on its own. 

Thank you,

    I’m not sure there are alliums any that produce more than one flower stem

    Alliums should be planted at least 6” deep, more if you can,  did they come planted like like in those pots, that’s a very small pot for a big plant, they could get flower spikes 3’ tall, they’ll be top heavy. But I’m not sure if you can plant them deep now.

  • Hi Lyn, thanks! Yes they came like this. I’ll try and get a deep pot and bury them as far down as I can  :#
