Allium sphaerocephalon in front of Californian poppies (Eschscholzia californica) & Welsh poppies (Meconopsis cambrica) .
Allium sphaerocephalon - Syn: The Drumstick Allium. Great naturalizer with dense, crimson-purple, egg-shaped flowers. Bulb size: 6 cm/up.
grass is Stipa tenuissima (mexican feather grass), the round headed flower is Allium sphaerocephalon, and the reddish orange flower is rudbeckia
Allium sphaerocephalon is a small-headed rich, blackcurrant allium is later-flowering than most and invaluable for that. I love it in bud, as much as in full flower, very pretty and will gently self-sow.
