    This lovely plant is driving me crazy. It looks like a cross between a
    Fritillaria Raddeana(Exquisite Crown Imperial Type)
    and a nodding onion.

    I can’t wait to find out what it is.

    Thanks everyone! I believe Stone has figured it out: allium bulgaricum! I thought it looked like a nodding onion as well but it definitely looks like allium bulgaricum. Now I can look up hw to care and maintain this in my garden!
