TOW Allium akaka

     I've grown Allium akaka for many years ( came as seed as something else  
).  Doesn't increase vegetatively for me and doesn't self-seed.  It's not as 
nice as A. karataviense but there's a je ne sais quoi about it that keeps me 
growing it.  I find the name fascinating--I suppose it's an infantile 
recollection of  "kaka" and kindergarden humor.  One would assume that it is 
a local name for the bulb.
