American Alliums - Gallery Index

[ back to Allium Central ]

These galleries feature just a few of the over 130 species of Allium in North America.  While there are a substantial number of wild onion species in North America, only a handful are popular in cultivation.  Admittedly, a large percentage of species prefer arid, high desert or montane habitats, and can be rather difficult to grow.  There are many others however that grow in more amenable habitats, and adapt readily to average garden conditions.  They should be tried without reluctance, as the American species, with few exceptions, are nearly always delightful plants to enrich the bulb aficionados garden.
