My plant is much more attractive untill the frame drys out in June, and the
leaves are quite like yours then Markus, but it would be good to have a
couple of other really distinct forms. A senscens glaucophyllum and A
senscens montanum are still flowering here and so is A angulosum in a really
deep mauve.
This Allium 'nutans' I have reminds me of what I have as A plummerae, an
american species , the leaves are strongly keeled so as to be almost
triangular in cross section, but the flowers are pink not white as in the
