I think that the seed heads of allium ‘Mount Everest’ are as lovely as the flowers.
I only bought one bulb last year “to try”
So this Autumn I am going to order some more.

Lovely photo, Allium seedheads are wonderful, they’re great plants all-round because not only are they stunning in flower, but you then have the seeds to look forward to!

Is this the plant that you chopped a branch of the apple tree off so that you could see it from the patio? Well worth it.

I agree, doesn’t have to be green or blooming to be stunning. Have you ever tried starting any of the seeds?
Last week, I took some seeds off my friend’s false indigo, and soaked them overnight. Then I stuck them in the back of the garden and forgot them. Just noticed they are already a couple of inches tall.

The kind of picture I keep looking at.
Can I print a post-card sized picture of it and put it on the wall next to my computer?
(I have another of yours there and I look at it several times a day – glancing up and thinking how lovely it is.)

I love this photo. I think seeds in general are overlooked as objects of beauty.

Your alium seeds will grow wherever you throw them. Very prolific.
