    Allium siculum, formerly Nectaroscordum.

    I was waiting ages for the photo to download, was going to say Nectaroscordum siculum or Sicilian honey garlic, but DimWit has beaten me to it! And it seems I'm out of date, someone keeps changing plant names.
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

    I know it as Nectaroscordum siculum as well Busy, I'm out of date too 😄. 
    Bit of a tongue twister, so in my head it's Honey Lily, the 'common name' that was on the packet of bulbs.
  • Aptly named "nectar" bit insects love them x
  • Thank you all it's new to my garden.

    I thought it was the other way around, formerly Allium, now Nectaroscordum

    In the sticks near Peterborough
