Unique allium has a 'tuft of hair'!
This towering plant, whose sturdy, green stems can grow to an enormous height of 150 cm, yields globular, purplered flower heads with an unusual trait. As the 7 cm blooms progress, a group of white-tipped, deep red florets resembling a tuft of hair rises a few centimetres above the inflorescence, giving it an egglike look. During Forelock's blooming period, the white stamens on its tiny, star-shaped flowers become more visible throughout the entire flower head. This long-lasting, fragrant allium grows easily in any garden, and its remarkable size makes it a natural choice for the back of any border.Allium amethystinum

Beautiful, but
Jul 17, 2020 | By Terri Singer

This is a beautiful allium. Very different and impressive. The big problem is, you can't let the seedheads dry, and be left on the flower. The seeds blow everywhere, and seedlings, sprout up absolutely everywhere, even in the rocks, between patio stones. This is why i gave it a 2 rating. The flower is a 5, but the handpicking out all the seedlings, was too time consuming and annoying.
