Allium obtusiflorum

Allium obtusiflorum DC. (syn. Allium maritimum Raf., Allium pusillum Cirillo ex Ten.) is endemic to Sicily, Italy, in the northern coast near Palermo. It grows in maritime sands, and on cliffs and hillsides. Allium erythraeum? Griseb. and Allium thessalicum? Brullo & al. were once considered synonymous with A. obtusiflorum, but were discovered to be separate species in the paper Cytotaxonomical revision or the Allium ohtusiflorum group (Alliaceae) by Salvatore Brullo et al 1994.
