These Allium, 'Globemaster' seedheads (about 7" diameter), are just as ornamental in the garden as when they're in bloom:

Would anyone else care to share their seedheads?

RC,
Thank-you.
Yours are beautiful!
Not sure what the first one is - some kind of cone flower?

Ron,
I love O. Poppy seedheads - they are so unique!

Thanks for sharing, both of you.

Julie,
I like the photo.'
I believe your allium is not globemaster but christophii ( Stars of persia)

My first pic is a wildflower, Indian Paint Brush I think.

Second is a wild thistle. And, the third one is a little grass that went to seed.

LOVE that angle on the poppy Ron.

Joan, glad to hear your hubby is being so productive. ;)

Thanks all.

RC,
Thanks for the IDs on your photos.
I've never seen Indian Paint Brush before.
It reminds me of the native coneflowers we have around here.

Karen,
Glad you liked the Allium photo, but it is indeed, 'Globemaster'.
Here's Globemaster in bloom.

I used to have 'Star of Persia', but it died out. It's a much larger globe, sometimes reaching 10+ inches in diameter. Its florets are spaced much farther apart:

Here's Allium, 'Gladiator' seedheads.
