In autumn, the beautiful leaf rosettes pay off with a haze of pretty lavender-pink
fragrant hemispheres atop 6-8" stems, the flowers lasting into October..

Unlike the typical (yet variable) plants under the name of Allium senescens
var. glaucum, this is a hybrid selection that is much lower growing, and with
more silvery growth, stronger swirling habit, and finer (more narrow) leaf
blades.  En masse, it makes a pretty groundcover.
