Allium~one of my favorites!..and if anyone knows a tried and tested way to stop them stinking when used as a cut flower  then I'd love to hear it...thanks..

back yard Allium Gladiator bulbs - Height: tall (Plant apart.) blooms Late Spring to Early Summer. Flowers the size of a softball on leafless stems. Plant in groups of 3 or more for best effect.

front garden idea

See how a couple of small trees can block the view from the pavement but add height and interest.
