Attractive rounded heads of green-white flowers open from June to August on thick inflated stems. A rare and very lovely plant, originally collected from the Pskem range and Akbulak valley in Uzbekistan by the late great Plant Hunter Jim Archibald with his wife Jenny. It has also apparently been sold as A.cepa 'Kew White'. Few good seeds.
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.
