Dear Mark,
I promise that I will change the labels. The  strain/form  we grow here
has been selected in our area for the cut-flower industry (strong
upright flower stems). The common A neopolitanum has  often stragling
thin stems.(like  A.subhirsitum) a *crit :
By the way, I do believe the citation for Allium cowanii to be incorrect
and backwards from it's actual taxonomic standing.  It should be Allium 
neapolitanum (syn. A. cowanii). Allium "cowanii" is established as a
misnomer for but a form of Allium neapolitanum
