August 7


This is a purple Allium. We have several of these growing in our flower beds in the back yard. They grow about 3 feet tall and open up to look like a fuzzy ball. We think they are a fun addition to the flower bed.

I have never planted alliums, but have always loved their uniqueness. I was just looking at some in the Breck's catalog I rec'd the other day. I wonder if they would fare well here in KS though -- I think with our windy days they might break!
