ALLIUM SAXATILE ALBUM
Clusters of pure white flowers with pointed petals open on strong thin stems. An unusual allium with prominent anthers rather giving it the appearance of a scabious when an established clump is in full flower. In the wild it is widely distributed across China, European Russia, Belarus, Caucasus, and the Altai Krai region in Siberia.
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.
