Allium vineale 'Hair', is a bizarre and pleasingly unusual type of Allium with a crazy bad-hair-day flowerhead. Flowering from June through to August, the centre is purple and is surounded by an umbel of elongated and wildly erratic green hair-like tendrils which are in fact new plantlets growing from the flowerhead.

A selected form of Crow Garlic, it is fully hardy and a dramatic addition to any garden, very different from the pompom shape of most Alliums. It is edible and the type species was often used in days gone-by in cooking as a garlic substitute.
