Allium flavum var. tauricum 'Truly Faded'
one of the best silver-stem cultivars
(the many-stemmed plant in the center is the one)
Photo by Mark
I felt it was important to show a few
selections while still
in bud, because for several weeks as the spathed buds
develop and the stems lengthen, they're capable of
presenting a striking pre-floral display unto itself. This
selection, named 'Truly Faded', has perhaps the most
silvery-bluish-white stems & spathes of any that I've grown
It flowers later than most (mid July) on thick, sturdy 12"
(30 cm) stems. The flowers are soft, faded old rose, in
large many-flowered heads. See next photo for flowers.
Just behind 'Truly Faded' is the dwarf pink-flowered
cultivar named 'Lindsey'. Click here to see that plant
in the bud stage. On the bottom right, the dwarf plant
still in bud is a deep brown-red selection named
'Boston Baked Beans'. Click here to see that
selection in flower.
