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.
