Common name: Forelock
Allium 'Forelock' is one of the later-blooming flowering onions. Its small, egg-shaped flower has a tuft of florets sticking up, hence the name. The stems curve a bit. The flowers are dark maroon, and its white stamens give it a frosted look. We have a planting at the end of the Laburnum Walk.
