Allium regelii

Allium regelii Trautv. (syn. A. cupuliferum var. regelii (Trautv.) Regel, A. yatei Aitch. & Baker) is one of the most sought Alliums in the world, yet appears to be a poor seed producer. It is native from northern Iran to central Asia. It is the only species to produce two-tiered blooms, along with the hybrid Allium angulosum.
