I have been not so patiently waiting for the giant allium bulbs that I planted last fall to grow and flower. Our city’s parks and recreation department had planted them last year and they looked so fun and Dr. Seuss-like that I knew I wanted to put them somewhere in my landscaping.
We had an intruder on our front porch last week that ran away after our dogs made a racket. After I fell back asleep my brain decided to have nightmares that the intruder had cut off the heads of the alliums before I got a chance to see them bloom. I have really been looking forward to these blooming! I’m glad they still have their heads.
I need help identifying this flower. I couldn’t find it in my wildflower field guide.
