Allium platycaule - cultivated plants

Allium platycaule - in flower   copyright  2000 Mark McDonough

Photo by Mark McDonough

In this photo, a couple flower heads are fully open in
early anthesis, just the inflorescence on the left with
maturing pale yellowish anthers. The photo was taken
late May.  The two expanding flower buds near the top
center, is Allium falcifolium, an allied species often
confused with A. platycaule, but with a distinctly
different look to the inflorescence.
