I went on a day trip with my garden club to a place called Deep Cut Gardens in Middletown, NJ. The flowers were all blooming. The flower that stood tall and above the rest was the Allium. Its a bulb planted that will return every year. It is a genus of flowering plants that includes hundreds of species, including the cultivated onion, garlic, scallion, shallot, leek, and chives.It has no leaves and is purple in color. You often see them against a house or wall, being the background height of a flower garden.
