They seem to be popping up everywhere: in gardening books and magazines, on Pinterest boards, and in public and private gardens across the country. Most allium flowers have a long, leafless stalk topped with a globe-like bloom that’s made up of a cluster of individual florets. Like exclamation points, alliums stand out from other plants, adding emphasis and excitement wherever they’re grown.
