Allium cernuum x rubens - This was a rare find in the summer of 2002, growing amongst a series of potted plants of the small Asian species Allium rubens, surely a garden cross with Allium cernuum. The pots of A. rubens grow within a foot or two of A. cernuum. Sorry, it's not a great photo, but it's the only one I took. The floral characteristic is much like A. cernuum, except the flowers are small round orbs, showing the A. rubens influence. The flowers are also held sideways rather than nodding as in A. cernuum. An intriguing find. Photo by Mark McDonough.
