Swan necked mystery allium, what is it?
I have these odd looking things growing in front of my house. I am sure they are alliums based on their appearance and tasting a seed (tiny bulb). But I have NO idea what they are. We have had them the 2 years we have lived here, previous owner (Mom) doesn't remember seeing them. Please, can anyone help?
They look sort of like corn or grass when they first come up, green with individual side leaves separated by some space. Then the top bit gets really tall and swoops over horizontally and makes a puffy white bloom that has a green point coming out of it. Overall it looks sort of like the neck and head of a swan in terms of curve and shape.
The white bloom part is now drying and crumbling and is full of tiny bulbs (like onions have.) I ate one yesterday, and it was sort of garlic chive-y tasting. Any idea what it could be? It is very interesting looking, so please look at the photo link and tell me what it could be.
