FOTD 29th May 2021: Allium

It seems that allium is another name for members of the onion and garlic family. How this one got into my garden I have no idea. It first appeared two years ago and arrived again this year. Apparently they grow when they feel like it. Although I cook with oinion and garlic (some times a little too much garlic perhaps) I do not plant it in the garden. I think this one is a wild garlic. It spent the best part of the month growing on a very very long stalk and yesterday the bud burst open to produce it many flowers. I will keep an eye on it and see how it develops.

  1. After one of our hurricanes a few years ago, seeds must have spread everywhere. I have gladiola and redbud that I never planted that have been growing and blooming every year. Weird how that happens. This allium is pretty!


  2. Gee, I can not identify it. It is obviously an Allium, but beyond that, I have no idea. I do not know what wild garlic is like, since it is not grown here. Garlic was developed from wild sorts before it was brought here. The wild sorts stayed home.
