Blooming Tuesdays {Allium}

Todays post brings to us:


Don't these blooms remind you of Horton Hears a Who? They do to me!

 Allium has a globe-shaped flower head atop a long straight stem and offers a unique texture and form. Allium is a member of the onion family, but don't fret, as they only smell when first cut. Blooming in the early spring and lasting through late June, these blooms come in few varities. The range of colors is choice, from true blue, dark purple, pink, and white. Though large allium is not ideal for use in bouquet work, the drumstick allium can be the perfect addition to your wedding bouquet.
