Allium flavum ssp. tauricum - Gallery 4

[ back to gallery index ]


This gallery depicts just some of the many color forms of Allium flavum ssp. tauricum.  It seems that no two seedlings are quite the same, and after a dozen years of growing and selecting the best, the color spectrum continues to expand with many beautiful pastels, often muted, subtle, almost indescribable hues, to exciting sizzling color forms heretofore unheard of in the genus Allium.
