Allium sivasicum - maroon form

Allium sivasicum    copyright  2000 Mark McDonough

Allium sivasicum can be quite variable in color. In
this specimen, the flowers are "soft maroon".  Similar
to Allium flavum, the little bell-shaped flowers are
covered with a bloom or farina, a dusty covering
over the waxy bells.  The photo above was taken in
open light, but not direct sun.  The image below was
taken in full sun, where the dusty "bloom" can
clearly be seen, rendering a more purplish look
under sunny light conditions.
