Allium Lusitanicum

These ornamental onions are one of my favorites, blooming here mid to late summer. One plant grows in a cluster of about 20 flowers and are a much smaller variety, a bit larger than a ping pong ball. The interesting thing about this plant is that it is a perennial instead of a bulb and flowers for much longer.

This is the fourth time I've painted alliums, but the first time I've done so with a brush.
