Allium decipiens

Allium decipiens is one of many Central Asian species that is also found in China. It has glossy green lorate leaves held close to the ground, and tall stems to 3' (90 cm) with lovely domed clusters of pink to lilac starry blooms. The second photo shows the pink form of Allium nigrum in early anthesis and a single Allium decipiens bloom just behind. Photos by Mark McDonough.
