I planted a selection of bulbs, this particular one has grown to around maybe around 5ft! Since this picture was taken the 'bud?' At the top has got larger and more round at the bottom. I am really curious to know what it might be, any help is appreciated:) thanks in advance

    It could be Allium "Summer  drummer". They grow taller and flower later than most of the usual like purple rain.

    That's exciting, any idea where you bought the bulbs or if it was a mixed pack or bag.
    Someone might have bought the same and remember.
    There are a few Allium cultivars that fit the height of yours if you put Allium and five feet into a search engine a few different tall ones come up.

    At least you now know it is an Allium :)
  • Thanks for all your posts, it will be interesting to see what happens next

    They don’t seem to believe you 😀
    another three photos on and it still looks like Allium Summer Drummer.

  • Lol, when I looked at pics of summer drummer online it didnt look that similar, but after seeing some other pics yeah definitely. I added the other pics as the 1st was a few weeks old
