    I was going to say it is the tory candidate, but it’s an allium.

    Agree, an allium.
    Based in Sussex, I garden to encourage as many birds to my garden as possible.

    Yes allium. They all grow to different heights. One of the most popular garden varieties is A Purple Sensation.  
    The most serious gardening I do would seem very strange to an onlooker,for it involves hours of walking round in circles,apparently doing nothing. Helen Dillon.

    Nectaroscordum has a longer thinner bud.  Its likely to be a purple pom pom type , or even possibly one of the white ones like mount everest. Give it another couple of weeks and a more definite id can be given.

    The stem is fairly dark so possibly a purple?
