Nectaroscordum siculum (aka Allium siculum or Allium nectaracsardium) is better known by the luscious name of Sicilian honey garlic.

Bees love the cascading bell-shaped flowers that hang in umbrellas on tall, elegant spikes in early summer. The exotic-looking flowers are creamy green, flushed with lilac. As they fade, they turn upright to form decorative shuttlecock-like seed pods in late summer that extend the season of interest and add an exciting twist to flower arrangements.

The garlic fragranced linear leaves are a little dull, but well worth putting up with for the bees this plant will attract!

A really unusual ornamental onion, this deciduous, bulbous perennial with a tufted habit will add vertical interest to a sunny or partially shaded border.
