Floral fireworks

I haven’t grown Alliums before, but when I saw these as bulbs in the local supermarket last autumn, I thought I would give them a try. The plants stand about 2 feet tall and have amazing metallic purple flowers that remind me of exploding fireworks. I only bought 3 bulbs, but I shall certainly buy more this year

    I love these flowers…I don’t have any, but I am letting last year’s row of leeks go to seed so I can watch them flower..big white globes…
    I will have to find some decorative allium to tuck in somewhere this fall.
