Advise on Alliums for Subtropical
Fri, 12 Dec 2003 18:55:18 PST

I like Allium drummondii, other than A. canadense (which seems to grow 
anywhere) it is the only Allium I try to grow around here, it doesn't mind the mild 
winters and humidity.  There are a few other native Allium species from south 
Texas but I've never seen them.  A. drummondii doesn't mind year round rain, 
and is a smallish plant.  

It is pale pink or lavender-pink.  I don't have seeds at present, but if 
someone jogs my memory next spring I'll put some seeds aside from stock that 
originated in south-central Texas.
