This image is created from time-lapse photographs of a One-Leaf onion, also known as American garlic or Allium Unifolium made over a period of 224 hours as it flowered.
Native to North America, this is a species of wild onion. It is a compact perennial with delicate clusters of up to 30 fairly large, star-shaped, satiny, rose-pink flowers. Alliums include some of the most ancient cultivated crops, such as garlic, onion, chive, and leek. They are said to symbolise strength, patience, good fortune and prosperity.
