Alliaceaea allium;. Purple Star Burst Alliumhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allium
This is an incredible spring flower. Very structural and gives nice height to the spring look. These guys are related to Garlic, Onions, Shallots, and Leeks all from the Dinner Table. and these are all a sub Family of the Liliaceae:, Lily family.
The Allium has a wonderful smell and can truly be noticed from a distance. They also make a great dried flower arrangement plant after the flower is finished (when naturally browned).
the negative to this plant but for many a plus it readily self seeds. So in a few years you could have many more than ever intended.
