John suggested I would have thousands of seedlings if I didn't 
deadhead my Allium tuberosum, which has been in the same place for at 
least 15 years.  I don't deadhead it.  I don't use its flowers in 
salads because I prefer to use the pink and purple ones of A. cernuum 
and schoenoprasum.  So perhaps my conditions are just on the edge of 
its requirements, and it survives, and multiplies only a little.
