As perennial plant gardeners, one of the things we learn over time is how each plant behaves. There are perennials that look great before and after flowering ( heuchera) and those that look terrible once they’ve finished blooming ( penstemon ‘huskers red’). There are plants that flop open, exposing woody centers. An allium flower head is a cluster of individual florets. The overall shape of this flower cluster can be round, oval or cascading, and the flower color may be white, yellow, pink, purple or blue. The allium's foliage usually emerges at least a month before the flowers.

It’s impossible to quickly summarize allium flowers, a gigantic group of perennial, edible and ornamental plants with different sizes, shapes, colors and bloom times. But it’s easy to sing their praises. Alliums, members of the onion family with about 1,000 species, grow in most climates and have bloom. Don’t confuse drumstick alliums with drumstick flowers (scabiosa stellata), also known as starflowers. This plant is a member of the honeysuckle family (caprifoliaceae) and the flower clusters have a similar shape, but it is otherwise completely different from the drumstick allium. Allium plants range in size with some flower heads reaching as large as a volleyball. Colors include white, pink, yellow, purple, red, and blue. Botanical characteristics, colors, and fragrances. Allium flowers are herbaceous plants that grow from bulbs and have a distinct onion or garlic odor or flavor.
