Allium moschatum

Allium moschatum - I'm particularly fond of this tiny delicate species, from European/Mediterranean regions. While its appearance is demure, I assure you the plant is tough, hardy, and long-lived. Excellent in a trough where its small proportions can be appreciated, it flowers in July-August atop wiry 4-5" (10-12.5 cm) stems. The foliage is extremely short, firm, wiry, and basal. The flowers are white, with reddish veining. Photo by Mark McDonough.
