Only good chance and the long fall with high temperatures made it possible to have seeds of this Allium, which most often gets ‘frosted’ before the maturation.
A very valuable, clump forming Allium, which flowers very late: October – November. The image was taken in Oct. 19th. Most often it will be the last species flowering in the garden in a temperate climate; possible together with some fall crocuses.
The pink flowers with exerted stamens in bright clusters are ageing to purple and remain beautiful even after drying out. The fine, grassy looking foliage will also take nice russet shades after the weather turns cold.
Germination: seeds should be sown, given 3-4 weeks of cold and then will germinate at warm.
