Ipheion is a small genus in the Alliaceae family that is mostly from Argentina and Uruguay. Although some feel this should still be recognized as a separate genus, many authorities now believe that taxa in this genus belong in other genera. There are conflicting opinions about whether a number of plants, mostly yellow flowered, that have been moved from genus to genus should now be included in Nothoscordum. Nothoscordum species usually have several flowered umbels. We are putting pictures of these plants on our Nothoscordum wiki page and with a link from this page. In 1963 Hamilton P. Traub proposed moving Ipheion to Tristagma, but not everyone is in agreement. We are now showing these Ipheion species, which are mostly one-flowered inflorescences, on that wiki page. Many of these plants are still named in the trade and sold as Ipheion.
