Purple Allium

Bulbs planted last fall lend wonderful excitement to the spring garden. It's such fun to watch them come up. There are sometimes a few duds that don't do much. This year's unusual weather has made it difficult, but I was always a B student and by those standards my bulbs are doing quite well.

I'm a big purple fan and I love the color of this new allium. I have others that are similar, but more of a lavender shade. Their fragrance has the faint aroma of grapes. (Ed says grape Nehi.) I think they are pretty special for a cousin to an onion.
