Thanks, Graham, for posting that Warmenhoven link.

I took a look at the Allium pages at that site, and I found something which
might be of interest to some members of this group. The account of  Allium
cowanii at the site begins:

"The entire plant is stronger and much larger than both others that it is
commonly mistaken for..."

That's good news to those of us who are holding out hope that there is a
recognizable entity which properly corresponds to the name Allium cowanii. 

On the other hand, I don't know what to make of the distinction the site
makes between Allium azureum and A. caeruleum. 

Allium lovers, take a look and let us know what you think.
