ALLIUM SEEDHEAD

At this stage I am careful to pull the whole stem of Allium Cristophii with seedhead, away from the bulb. These can be fixed elsewhere in the border for display after flowering.

Don't they look so beautiful and so very black.

Beautiful Post Louise! Please drop by my blog for a special gift. I know you already have one, but you deserve another!

Hm, nice: seeds. Chive seeds taste nice, and they are alliums..I wonder...

Heather said...

Beautiful photo, Louise. I love alliums and am happy to spread the seeds around...in my own gardens and to my friends. ;-)

Hi Louise - how clever you are to take this close up to remind us that alliums remain beautiful for so long after they've stopped flowering.

I realise I've been awful and not thanked you for your generous contribution to my open garden fundraiser yet. I do apologise.

Also, can you tell me about the Blogging With a Purpose badge you're using to link to me. I'd like to award something to all bloggers who've donated - whether it's a prize, cash or help with getting the site set up. Do you think it will be OK to use/adapt the badge you're displaying for that, or is it part of a specific meme?

They look beautiful yet sinister... I could imagine them in a scene of 'Sleepy Hollow' or some such scarey film.

Love this photo. This is a very interesting plant, I am not sure that I have seen it before.

Hi, I thought about growing that allium next year.
I have been given the 'tree of happiness award' so I'm passing it on to you as one of my fav blogs
