Many years ago I bought a plant at a garage sale that the lady called an Ornamental Onion. It grew and thrived and was like nothing I had ever seen. Then, like I often manage to do, I killed it.
A couple of years ago, I managed to find another one, again at a garage sale. I love the unique look of the leaves and I planted it in one of the planters we bought while living in Texas. In the summer, I love to set it in the antique baby swing we found at another rummage sale.
When I decided to share this plant with you, I did some searching on the net for Ornamental Onion and saw nothing like this. So maybe it’s called something else? Do you know? Whatever it is, it loves to bloom in the summer.
It sends a few stalks out of little tiny purple blooms. They are so small (smaller than a popcorn kernal) and easy to overlook. But, they always delight me.
