I have a few clumps of purple Allium flowers growing in my front garden beds. Allium flowers are related to the onion and garlic family – however these plants are ornamental and I don’t believe that they can be eaten.

I have to remember to move the Allium that is growing at the end of my flower bed near the sidewalk this fall. I think kids walk by on their way to school and pull off the developing flower buds in mid June so I end up with these long green headless stalks instead of beautiful flowers at the end of my garden bed.

Do you grow Allium?
