    Impressively lovely heads of bright rose-purple, urn-like flowers, with sharply-pointed tepals, the outer recurved and the inner with inrolled margins, open in umbels from May to July on an extended stem long after the leaves have died. This native of the Western United States and Canada makes masses of tiny, spherical bulbs but is not invasive. ... Learn More



    This slender plant makes a dense umbel of narrowly bell-shaped, pale purplish-pink flowers which in effect are fairly big for a small allium. A lovely plant from the Alpes-Maritimes of Southern France which is easily grown outside in a sunny spot. ... Learn More



    One of the best of the flowering onions, this handsome, tall and easy plant has glaucous, very wide, striped, strap-shaped leaves. In May and June it opens dense, spherical, many-flowered umbels, up to four inches wide, of star-shaped, lilac-violet flowers. Few seeds collected. ... Learn More



    Short, stubby flower stems, seldom more than 7-10 cm tall carry an inverted conical to rounded umbel of broadly funnel-shaped, bright red-pink flowers. These are held above attractive, long, ovate, blue-green leaves margined with red, which protrude from small, white-coated bulbs, which in the trade are often sold for between ten and fifteen pounds each! It is not surprisingly a very rare and most decorative little species, perfect in a pot or even under alpine glass, though it is happy also outside, as long as provided with a fertile, loam-based soil, good drainage and a dryish summer rest. It is a central Asian species named by Regel as long ago as 1875 from Turkmenistan where it was said to have been found at between 3,000 and 11,000 feet altitude, although it is now known to range throughout the Pamir mountain systems.

    Deeply fragrant, bell-shaped, densely rounded umbels of yellow-white flowers, an unusual colour in this family, open in early summer, although the yellow is produced by the multitude of attractive pollen-covered anthers. These are borne above clumps of stiff grey-green linear leaves. A bone hardy alpine-zone inhabitant, it is found, as its name suggests, in the Altai Mountains ('Altai' means 'gold mountain' in Mongolian). It is also native to Asiatic Russia (Altay, Buryatiya, Zabaykalsky Krai, Irkutsk, Tuva, Amur Oblast), Mongolia, Kazakhstan and northern China (Inner Mongolia, Heilongjiang and Xinjiang). But I bet you didn't need to know all of that! ... Learn More



    From Western China, this rare and delightful species bears in July drumsticks of delicate rose-lilac flowers with dark red filaments. These honey-scented heads look to be made of pink velvet. It is seldom seen, but in contrast to its rarity this well-mannered plant is easy in the garden in sun or light shade and a fertile soil. It is native to slopes from 2500-3000 metres, of W Xinjiang in China, Kazakstan, Mongolia and Russia. ... Learn More



    At the top of the wish-lists for allium-lovers, these dazzling flowers are made up of deep pink to purple petals surrounding a blueberry-purple centre, which opens in early to midsummer on upright stems and seem to hover like large, brilliantly coloured jewels above the foliage. ...

    Heads of unusually attractive fragrant flowers, which can vary from rose pink to dark purple, open their petals which are delicately marked deeper at the centres. Generally flowering from May to August, they live at heights usually between 2,000 to 8,500 feet. As a rule their chosen habitat is rocky, thin or sandy soils, foothills, mountains, particularly in dry areas including chaparral and woodland habitats, and on open or shaded slopes, so this is an indication of what they like. In their native USA they have been recorded from southeastern Washington and northern Oregon to southern California, and western Nevada. ... Learn More



    Delicate, but strong and charming, and a valuable bloom in the late summer gap, this pendulous allium (pulchellum means "beautiful!") has wide, bell-shaped, reddish violet flowers, that sprout out and then down, resembling an exploding firework. It excels especially among silver-foliage plants, when its dusty bells dangle from massed slender stems. It will soon bulk up making impressive clumps. ... Learn More



    This ornamental onion has narrow leaves on the lower part of the stem and nodding, rich red-purple, bell-shaped flowers, which are borne in loose umbels. It will soon bulk up making impressive clumps. Bulbils are small offset bulbs which will produce quicker results than growing from seed. ... Learn More



    This is the rare and exquisite but easily grown pure white form of this valuable, late-flowering plant. Strong flower stems carry graceful loose heads of icy white, bell-shaped flowers, just like an exploding firework display, for two months or more. If you are lucky, in well-drained soil, it will gently self sow and form handsome drifts. RHS AGM winner ... Learn More

The bulb is edible and has a strong onion flavour. ... Learn More
