One of the fun aspects of Allium flavum var tauricum,
is that oftentimes flowers change color at late anthesis
as the fertilized flowers become become dry and the
drooping pedicels become erect.  Here we see a
deep orange seedling with blooms that age to a
bright pink at the center of the inflorescence. Next
to it is a young seedling in a pale whitish-lilac color.
