Flower of the Day: Nodding Onion

Allium cernuum; Liliaceae (lily family)

Sometimes white, sometimes pink.

Noxious weed in Arkansas, threatened in Iowa, Minnesota, and New York.

Not much else to say about it.  This is not the same plant as the wild garlic (native) and field garlic (alien) that are common lawn weeds.
