Allium atropurpureum

Family alliaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers purple

Forms dense clusters of starry deep purple flowers on upright stalks. Despite several attempts to grow it from seed, I've yet to see blooming-size plants (and therefore, flowers). Trying once again this year.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
