Both my husband and our son love to buy plants for our garden, but they rarely worry about labeling them.
So once in a while, somewhere in the garden we discover a plant that none of us remembers to have bought or planted, let only remember what it’s called…
And hubby and son don’t care… After all:
“that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet”
But I like to know the names… and so I’m wondering… Is there somebody out there who can tell me which species this Allium is?
It’s rather tall: the flowering stalk is about 1 m/1 y, and the bud is 10 cm/4 inches long.
ETA: Meanwhile I found out this plant is called, Sicilian honey lily, Sicilian honey garlic, Mediterranean bells, and its Botanic name is either Allium siculum or Nectaroscordum siculum. I didn’t find out yet which one is the more recent name.
