This tall, distinguished and attractive species from Xinjiang, Mongolia, Kazakstan and southern Russia has compact spherical umbels of yellow pom-pom flowers on strangely curled and twisted stems in early summer. Indeed, some people cannot believe it is an ornamental onion.
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.
