Allium oreophilum Bright fuchsia-rose florets with darker midribs are held in a 2" semi-loose umbel. Lightly fragrant florets are larger than those of most other alliums. One of the finest short flowering onions. Also called Mountain Onion and Alpine Rosy Bells; was formerly Allium ostrowskianum.
8–10" tall. Late Spring to Early Summer blooms, Z3-8. 5cm/up bulbs.
6403 Pink Lily Leek
Alliums prefer full sun and well-drained soil.
The large Allium genus is characterized by small six-petaled florets held in umbels—large or small, loose or tight. Sweet-smelling blooms make great fresh cutflowers or dried winter arrangements whether you cut them before or after the green seed pods form.
The same genus as all edible onions, garlic and chives. Most repel slithery, winged and legged pests—including deer, and only when crushed do they smell like onion.
