|Mission: It is the goal of these pages to gather
botanical information on the genus Allium from a disparate array of individual floras and
botanical references, then present the information in a single, consolidated,
user-friendly way. It is my intent to strive for accuracy, relevancy, and
thoroughness, however there are several significant challenges confronting this objective.
The genus is very large, with the estimated number of species ranging between 600 -
1000 species. The taxonomy of alliums is burdoned with a great number of synonyms
and confusion. When the status of botanical nomenclature is in question due to
conflicting opinion, I've attempted to broker the difference with my own opinion and best
judgement, with personal commentary interspersed among the researched information.
As usual, I welcome any and all suggestions, corrections, notification of omissions, photo donations, and constructive criticism. Feel free to contact Mark McDonough at email@example.com.
