They are Allium.

I agree, Allium. For comparison: Ornamental Onion (Allium schubertii)

Sue, thanks for asking the question . I will have to plant some for next spring.
Plants are like that little ray of sunshine on a rainy day.

So they're both the same plant? They look so different!
These were planted outside a restaurant. Do they ever grow wild?
Thank you for the help!

Allium includes onion, garlic, chives, etc... a fitting restaurant decoration!
