A series of two photos, same genus, but what species? Please!

Zaqa(10b)June 9, 2014

Hello -

I have posted two photos of specimens that must surely be in the same genus, if not species (albeit varying cvs). I am unsure of what they are, most likely not Alliums, but possibly similar. Please assist ID, thank you very much!

The second photo in question...

Looks like Alliums to me, maybe A. canadense. Is there an onion/garlic odor?

Definitely Alliums. I don't know what species you might have. Allium vineale is one I am familiar with which is similar. Allium canadense looks like the second picture.

Allium "Hair" for the first one.

Haha, thank you. The bloom is slightly different from other Alliums and there is only a single stalk (sans leaves), but I checked on your suggestion and they look identical. Thank you. It does smell of Allium, good advice. Ha. Especially for photo number one as it is slightly different from number two.

Thank you floral_uk and Thedocguy for the information.
