Allium pulchellum

Allium puclchellum, is another bulb surprise in my garden! I scattered these bulbs throughout one of my small gardens and they came up late on spindly stems. On top of these skinny stems, small tight buds formed and to be honest they did not look all that promising. Until one day, in very late July, they opened! They are a very sharp lavender color and they seem to glow in the understory of some of my taller perennials. Here they look lovely against the stem of a dark Heuchera flower.
