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.
