    I've grown Allium scorzonerifolium v xericiense in the open garden for 
years--it is somewhat like a more attractive and daintier A. moly, the leaves 
being very narrow as compared to that plant.  It grows quite well in a bed with 
bearded irises that is not watered during the summer.

    By the bye, the type plant A. scorzonerifolium v scorzonerifolium  with 
its head of bulbils and maybe a single floret or two has proved to be a weed in 
Betty Lowry's rock garden in Renton,WA.  It is only to be recommended to the 
most ardent of Alliophils.
