Allium Flowers Pictures

Allium flowers are beautiful long stemmed flowers with colorful blooms in a ball shape at the top of their stems.  Because of their shape and appearance they are also known as drumstick flowers or ornamental onions.  The larger ones are called Giant Allium Flowers and can be taller than small children.  These flowers are often used in bouquets and are also dried and used for crafts.   These are perennial flowers and you can buy their bulbs and grow your own.  Here are some photos of different colors and sizes of allium flowers.


Here is a close up picture of a beautiful purple-lilac colored allium flower.  If you look closely it’s almost like there are hundreds of tiny flowers inside the bloom.

 Here’s a photo of a dried out allium.  As I mentioned, often times people dry out allium flowers to use for making crafts.  They have a great shape and can be colored to make beautiful creations.  They are often used for 4th of July decorations.
