Definitely something different

These come up after most of my other bulbs have finished. I live in Zone 4 and these have done very well. They look similar to a weed we have up here when they start, so do not pull them out by mistake. They grow tall and are definitely an interesting addition. Color is reddish/purple. Fairly true to the picture.
Nice Allium

Purchased these to intersperse with a stand of white tall bearded iris that was fairly boring. Unfortunately these didn't bloom at the same time, much later than other allium in my garden, but really liked them once they did bloom! Ordered more today to go into different parts of the garden in addition to more traditional blue allium to add to the iris bed.
