ALLIUM CYATHOPHORUM VAR FARRERI
This gorgeous, easily-grown dwarf, from grassy slopes up to 11,000 ft in the mountains of north western China, is perfect for a scree or rockery, forming a tight clump of grassy leaves about 8" high, with nodding clusters of deep violet-purple flowers with sharply-pointed petals in summer.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
