Nectaroscordum

AKA Allium siculum, Nectaroscordum siculum, honey garlic, Sicilian honey lily, Sicilian honey garlic or Mediterranean Bells.

This is what the florets and pedicels are encased in before opening.

As, the outer covering dries, it allows the interior flower to unfurl.

These are immature florets (blossoms) on long, drooping pedicels.
The florets are bell-shaped and cream-coloured with maroon stripes.

Bees love them!
