Mystery Allium Seed Head

scottyboipdx(8)September 24, 2012

Ok gardeners...do you know which Allium produces the seed head below? I'm trying to figure out which Alliums to order for next year...and I want THESE seed heads in my garden!!!

I already have 'Purple Sensation' and A. cristophii in my garden...so i know it's neither of those.

Hi scottyboipdx,

You might also try asking at the link below. Though the majority of the posts are garlic related, ornamental alliums are also discussed by some members.

Hi again,

I see that picture is pictured in the blog linked below and it says that it is, "perhaps 'Gladiator' or 'Globemaster'? "

To further maybe confuse things, you might look at Google images for allium gladiator seedhead

and also

Google images of allium Globemaster seedhead.

If you hover cursor over each thumbnail picture, you will see a picture description.

I'd say you can't go wrong by buying either one of them.

Here is a link that might be useful: scroll down to see the exact picture.
