Artist's Description

I have been going through a phase where I am taking flower photos. This was taken in a friends garden a few springs back. It is a beautiful Allium called a ‘Lucy Ball.’ Here is some info I got from the internet-

“The Allium ‘Lucy Ball’, ‘Allium’, a fall planted ornamental onion bulb, will produce large flowers. This award-winning variety has sweetly scented, dark rosy, lilac flower heads, that are tightly packed and sitting at the top of tall, thick, bare stems. They are great for ornamental value and widely used for both landscape and cut flower purposes. The blooms are pleasantly fragrant and this plant is an easy and prolific addition to the garden. Alliums will grow in any average soil, doing even better in rich, well-drained soil. To achieve a successful visual effect, 10 to 15 bulbs should be planted close together. Alliums prefer to be dry in their dormancy.

The Allium Lucy Ball is ideal for containers, mass plantings, borders, and cut flowers. These plants are rabbit, squirrel, and deer resistant. Lucy Ball has a bloom period of about 3 weeks and they bloom in late spring to early summer.":http://www.naturehills.com/product/lucy_ball_al...
