Allium togasii is one of the very best and most useful little onions. It's a Japanese species that flowers in late summer to early autumn, depending on the form grown. It prefers a sunny position in very sandy soil. The first photo shows the grassy clumps of thread-thin foliage in spring. The second photo shows the plant in bloom, with spheres of palest pink in August on 4-6" (10-15 cm) stems. The foliage has most disappeared by the time the flowers arrive. Sometimes spelled A. togashii. Photos by Mark McDonough.
