A Week Of Flowers 2022 ~ Day 5

Fast forwarding to late May, possibly my favourite time of the year and a bulb in the shape of allium siculum also known as Sicilian Honey Garlic. Not only is it loved by the pollinators it has most attractive architectural seedheads too. It apparently has a tendency to self-seed and can become invasive but it has never reached pest levels in my garden ..... yet! It is also is happy in shade so that is a plus for me.

Thanks to Cathy who blogs at 'Words and Herbs' for hosting this week's celebration of flowers.


  1. Sounds like a plant that I might like to grow with the lovely flowers and interesting seed heads. Thanks for including it.

  2. I put some of these in two years ago and I love them, as do our hummingbirds! Eliza

  3. Wow, that is an impressive allium. Glad you can grow that in the shade too. The name makes it sound exotic too!
