Growth of an Allium

*must post must post must post*

Ok, have a few photos showing the growth of a type of Allium (Purple Sensation) I planted as a bulb last autumn:

The swizzle-y leaf protruding in from the left is from a Honey Lily. If I do a follow-up “growth” post, it’ll be on that. :)

Currently all the purple petals have fallen off and all the leaves have died back, leaving behind these explosion shaped seed heads on 2-3 foot high stalks. Pretty damn cool! Seeing as these have survived, I’m planning to plant some different allium varieties this Autumn as well.

Next post, if I’ve persuaded my friend to upload the videos, I’ll show you what’s been distracting me from the blog over the past month or so. Otherwise, it’s a toss up between the honey lily and the baby hat.
