...and already you shared it with others!

I donated a couple seedlings this past spring, too. smiley

The green ovaries that are already so prominent on new flowers really complement the petal coloring.  This bicolor effect is very pleasing.  Not so noticeable on my pic, but easily seen on yours, Mark.

Stunning Allium sp. Mark and Rick. cool

I only grow a couple of species, but have a feeling this may change ! Are there many months when an Allium isn't in flower?

53.69° N, Dedicated to West Coast Fritillaria, plus three other members of the subgenus Liliorhiza. I grow other Genera, as time permits !

Allium bodeanum - appears to be a shorter version of A. cristophii

Allium bodeanum

I have some seedlings of Allium peninsulare, but being impatient I also bought some bulbs last fall - the first of the bought ones is starting to open

Allium peninsulare

A rather common one, Allium moly, which I've never had flower before here in Redesdale!

Gee, Allium moly for me has mature foliage even when buds are present let alone flowering.

Hi Rick,

if you look closely there is one rather ratty looking leaf showing! The others are below the level of the photo - they don't look as attractive as yours!

Allium thunbergii album going strong.  Ozawas has only a few flowers open so far.

That's a lovely white allium, Rick.

Another American allium in bloom for us, Allium abramsii

Allium abramsii

Grown from Seedex seed I think,

cheers

From Flora of North America:

Allium abramsii

Leaves persistent, withering from tip by anthesis, 1, basally sheathing,...

So there is only one leaf, and it grows through your winter?
