The ‘Purple Sensation’ allium has such interesting architecture. Each little blossom in the bulb seems to be held on a stick, radiating from the flower’s center. Each blossom is a tiny daisy, and watching them emerge in mid-spring is a joy. They start out as tight little balls.
Then as the bloom opens more fully you can see the tiny flowers.
Then, voila, the plant is fully open, a round ball of purple standing tall in the garden.
The intricacy of plants continues to leave me in awe.
