One of the true 'white' alliums, this rare plant with attractive purple anthers, produces heads of sizeable bell-shaped flowers which slowly age to pink. With a clustering habit in the wild, it is found up to extreme heights in South Turkey, Lebanon and Cyprus, where it grows in pine and mixed forest, oak, grassland and limestone slopes at altitudes up to 2800m.
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.
