Allium schmitzii

Allium schmitzii is endemic to Portugal, growing on river banks and in rock crevices. Closely related to chives, or A. schoenoprasum (see above), with similar narrow hollow leaves. The upright, rather open umbels of starry pale pink flowers are unlike the dense, oblong bloom heads of chives, distinguishing itself from that species. Photo by John Lonsdale.
