Allium lemmonii

Allium lemmonii has a rather broad range in the western states. It is found on slopes made of mostly clay soil. It is a relative of Allium falcifolium where the leaves are flattened and somewhat falcate. Photo 1 shows the flower head, which is rather large, and photo 2 shows the habit. Photo 3 show plants that are just starting to push up the buds. Photos by Nhu Nguyen taken at the Tilden Botanic Garden.
