It's hard to imagine that Allium thunbergii and Allium sacculiferum could be so easily confused.  It seems so obvious.  Thanks, Mark, for such good identification photos.  My A. thunbergii alba, from a forumist here, should begin blooming any day now.

I have always thought of Alliums as spring and summer blooming bulbs, but obviously I have to reconsider that! Seems I have to make room for some in my garden . . . . Hope they tolerate some autumn rain :-\
