Allium 'Sugar Melt' 

I feel fortunate having this seedling appear in my garden years ago, originally deriving from a hybrids of
Allium senescens var. glaucum.  It is among my first named hybrids, and remains one of the best. It
grows with numerous even-height stems, roughly 14-16" tall, with slightly domed hemispheres of 
clear light pink flowers, with a haze of yellow anthers around each floral cluster.  Flowering for a 
long period beginning mid August, this is among the most floriferous of rhizomatous alliums for the
garden. It is available from Plant Delights Nursery. This one send bees and butterflies into a frenzy!
