Drumstick allium is a well-known and long-cultivated ornamental ignored by deer, rabbits, and rodents.  Dark reddish-purplish 1" flower clusters appear atop 24" stems in early summer.  Plants are grown from bulbs and shipped with soil in biodegradable pots; plant the pot to avoid disturbing the bulbs.  The pot will quickly break down when in contact with soil.
