Alium/Garlic Flower

I like allium flowers, and next year I am going to buy some with the big purple globes and plant them all over the garden.

The flower above is one of three that I believe come from garlic that was planted my first summer in the house.  As the only available garden at that time was under the tree in the front garden, I planted everything there depite the ground being full of roots and very hard.  Eight years later and I have  interesting flowers from some of the unharvested garlic.  There is no point trying to move them as I have plenty of garlic for eating in my raised bed garden in the back.
