Allium karataviense 'Ivory Queen'
- this recent pure white selection is superb,
being a clear white as compared to the muted pink or off-white color of the typical
form.  In the view below, we see three forms, 'Red Globe' on the left, the typical
washed-out pink form in the middle, and 'Ivory Queen' on the right.
