Allium flavum ssp. tauricum - Garden View Gallery

[ 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.

An old bed of Allium flavum ssp. tauricum, mostly pale yellows and some soft orange tones, but upon close inspection there are numerous pastel shades of melon, buff, and pink.   New colors show up each year as self-sown seedlings.
