Allium that grew from unharvested onion sets

Apparently last year I missed harvesting some onions. This summer three alliums grew. I knew that allium is in the onion family but did not know this could happen.

Have a question about this project?

    I had the same blossoms come this year from onions I planted in April. They are beautiful. I cut them and enjoyed them in my dining room for a couple weeks. Great info KMS. I plan on using these onions up first!!
