Allium flavum var. tauricum 'Hot Molasses'
the deepest red selection to date

Allium flavum var. tauricum 'Hot Molasses'    copyright  2001 Mark McDonough

Photo by Mark McDonough

I selected and named 'Hot Molasses' a few years ago.  It's a
slow grower, with few stocky silver stems to about 10" (25 cm)
tall, and deep, burnt red-orange flowers.  In the photo above,
taken in the dim light of dusk, the flowers appear uniformly
dark red. The stems are so silvery as to appear silvery-blue.
In this photo, the blooms are at mid-anthesis.  Click here to
see the flowers at early anthesis (just opening).
