Allium atropurpureum

Allium atropurpureum is found in cultivated ground and dry open spaces throughout the Balkans. The flowers are dark, dark red-purple with black ovaries. The stems are about 24-30" (60 - 75 cm) and flower in late June. I've never succeeded in growing this from seed, so purchased bulbs gave me the jump-start I needed. Photo by Mark McDonough.
