I love flowers with pom pom like heads............thin stems with a flower head like the Armeria I showed you in the last post.
Chives have very pretty lavender/ish pom pom like flowers, so when I saw them sprouting up all over my flower bed last Summer, I decided to wait and see if they would flower.
I left them and left them and waited..............patiently.
|A few nice plants, lots of weeds and lots of chives, growing separately.|
Which started to look promising...........so I waited.
Then they sprouted long green tendrils not resembling petals at all.
But patience is a virtue so I waited some more, and eventually I saw the beginnings of the resemblance of a flower.
A definite pom pom like flower.
Until I had this...........one fully open (?) lavender coloured tiny pom pom flower head.
Did you read that carefully ? I said ONE, just ONE tiny pom pom flower head that doesn't look much like other chive flowers I've seen and only lasted a couple of days.
Needless to say............this year I didn't feel like being quite so patient so I pulled them all up.
