Alllium and Purple Heads

Purple Heads
6 x 6

There are hundreds of allium plants, including the onions and garlic we eat. I saw this cluster of the ornamental variety at the Montreal Botanical Gardens and loved its onion’s round ball shaped flower heads. It is surprising that the thin stems can hold such heavy looking purple heads! They are so much fun that I think everyone should grow them in their garden!
