Allium winklerianum

Allium winklerianum - from Central Asia to one province in China, this 2' tall (60 cm) melanocrommyum onion has deep pinkish-purple flowers, having an enticingly sweet candy-like scent. Tends to be a fussy grower and not long lived, but worth the effort to keep it going. Prefers dry, well drained situations. Photos from Mark McDonough and Arnold Trachtenberg.
