Different from what I once grew under this
name from a collection in Turkey,
this plant also
comes from Turkey.
Tiny little bell-shaped flowers, but
the long pedicels of the same color magnify
the floral effect. The growth is slim, wiry, with numerous silvery
stems that spray gracefully
outwards, nicely presenting little octopus mop-head blooms. Photo
taken 2nd week of July.
Most alliums have pedicels that are green, so it is fun to find
species where the pedicels are
highly colored, enhancing the overall impression of the flower heads.
