How About Some Onion This Time?

by Triplicity Flowers

When you see these beautiful globular clusters of flowers, can you imagine they are closely related to onion and garlic? These Allium flowers come out in late spring and summer. Some species grow up to more than 4′ tall with flower heads more than 7″ in diameter. They are magnificent to look at, but be aware of the smell of some of them. They are in the same family of garlic and onion after all.
