Anyone have an idea of what this flower is?

Looks like a rather large, purple, dandelionish fluff flower.

I think so, too. This’ll be my first spring in my new place. This lone Allium stood out amongst a plethora of tulips…

Yes, indeed, it is Allium, a perennial related to onions. If you want more of them check around the base of the plant for little bulbs or “offsets”. You can also grow them from seed.

They grow in my flower beds. It’s an agapanthus.

No, @gooch, agapanthus has much bigger blooms/buds than the allium. see what I mean, compared to jmah’s pic in her Q?
