This is Muscari Plumosum a very strange little beast. It has feathery purple blooms and it has a wild, rebellious way about it. It seems to say, “I’m gonna grow whichever way I want to, alright?!” When it is cut it is difficult to arrange in any organised fashion, so, I just don’t bother and let it do it’s own thing in a nice low vase or bowl.
The final candidate for tonight’s ‘weird and wonderful’ presentation is ... the Hairy Allium. I love these strange alliums, they can grow over 60 cms in height so together as a bunch they look very elegant. The bunch pictured below are little surprise seedlings from last year’s flowers.
Sometimes they even seem to have a personality of their own.
