Fall of 2014, I rescued some plants from a house that was to be torn down.
There were a lot of these, which I first thought were Summer Drummer.
But the color is off (also off in my photo).
Their color is like a periwinkle purple, if there Is such a thing.
Lovely strong seed heads too.

Thank you for rescuing the plants. You will be rewarded for your efforts and the plants will multiply.

Did I mention I don't like pastels?????
I will pass them along to someone who does though.
Can anyone tell me their name?
I could put them on my ATP "have" list if I knew their name.

|And I ALWAYS rescue plants when I can get permission to!|
(And sometimes I just sneak in there - but leave some behind just in case.)
I even brought home a wilted daffodil, still attached to its bulb, on the sidewalk in a busy neighborhood one spring and nursed it back to health.
I hate to see good plants die!

|Mine seem beefier.|
I'll have to get a better, closer photo next season.
I didn't realize how off the color was in this year's photo until I posted it.

|Could this be elephant garlic?|

The bulb looked more like a tiny potato than a garlic.
I wasn't even sure it was an allium until it came up.
Not a lot of "cloves".

|These photos look similar but not quite:|
I'm still paging through the 91 pages of alium in the database.
Tomorrow morning when I go out to the garden, I'll get a pic of the seed heads, most of which are still standing.

|It might well be this one:|
The color is being tricky.
Don't know what's the color of the flower and what's the camera's reading of the color.....

|I've come to the conclusion that I'm not going to be able to ID this plant....|
