What Houzz contributors are saying:

Debra Prinzing added this to Teach Your Landscape Rhythm
Rounded and mounded forms appear and repeat themselves throughout this dreamy meadow — a rhythmic planting scheme that is alluring and unforgettable. Santolina in shades of silver and green covers the ground, while purple alliums repeat that globe shape on taller stems. The distant wands of dark purple lavender echo the alliums, adding depth.More:Pavers for the Perfect Patio and PathMagical Garden Paths
Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Ornamental Allium
Botanical name: Allium sppCommon names: Allium, ornamental onionUSDA zones: 3 to 9, depending on speciesWater requirement: Regular water while bloomingLight requirement: Full sunMature size: Varies by speciesTolerances/environmental benefits: Drought tolerant, deer and pest resistantEvery spring and summer, orbed clusters of white, pink, purple, red, yellow and even blue flowers appear on the tops allium's tall, leafless stems, making the garden a living party. Floral lollipops poke their heads above surrounding foliage and give a friendly garden welcome. I feel like these flowers would be smiling if they could.With more than 500 species to choose from, it can be hard to pin down which allium is right for you. For now, here are three popular and highly rated allium species.
Frank Organ added this to Focus Your Garden Palette
Muted colors. Gray and glaucous foliage planted en masse need not be boring. In the last decade, alliums, especially the large globe varieties, have become very popular as accent plants. Here they stand over a mixed planting of 'Cotton Lavender', Santolina chamaecyparissus, and French lavender, Lavandula stoechas. Their purple flowers resonate with the butterfly-shape lavender flowers and bring life to the border.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Cottage Garden Style
Plant the unexpected. Bright purple allium, standing tall, adds color. Artemisia and santolina are both good filler plants; their soft foliage and inconspicuous flowers serve as a backdrop for more colorful plantings.
Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Lavender Cotton
Planted en masse alongside ornamental alliums (Allium spp) and lavender shrubs (Lavandula spp), lavender cotton's bright yellow flowers just peek above the surrounding foliage.Planting notes. Cotton lavender is a typical Mediterranean native — it is tolerant of full sun, full heat and needs sandy, well-drained soil.Cotton lavender does better when regularly pruned. To maintain a healthy dense appearance, cut the shrub back before spring growth emerges every year. Otherwise, it has a tendency to become woody and sparse. You can trim the edges or cut the plant nearly to the ground. After shoots have flowered, deadhead to encourage more blooms. If the entire plant becomes too woody, you can remove and start again. In colder regions, the plant may freeze to the ground, but if the roots remain undamaged, it should survive.
Lavender and green. The most common color paired with lavender in nature is green — think of green foliage or green fields, dotted with lavender blooms. The green can be pale and silvery, like the foliage on a lavender plant, or vibrant chartreuse, like the stem of an allium.

Design tip: If you're new to designing with color, choose a theme color or colors, such as pinks, blues or purples, much like you would for colors inside a house. The different shapes of the individual plants you choose will give you variety; the repetition of color will have a calming and harmonious effect. As you get bolder, add a pop of contrasting color — yellow nasturtiums mixed in with blue pansies and delphiniums, bright red lupine nestled among white Shasta daisies and pink echinacea or a bright orange black-eyed Susan scattered about in a sea of lavender.
