Lauw, was it you who posted the photo of Allium schubertii? There were two photos posted on the PBS wiki, one being a truncated "copy of" the former. They had the %20 symbol in the name and at the end due to blank spaces, so I renamed the photo and created a link in the PBS wiki "Big Ball Onions" page, and deleted the copy. The updated url for the photo is: http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/files/… Please let me know who uploaded this fine photo so I can add your name as photographer to the image link. By the way, the plant shown in the photo is simply stunning! I'd like to hear from people who grow this plant, particularly in colder climates. It's known to be somewhat tender, and certainly that has proved true in my northern Massachusetts climate. I have to be satisfied with A. cristophii (note correct spelling, without the "h") to enjoy giant spidery balls of bloom. Do others find this species (schubertii) tender?
