Allium cernuum 'White Master'
Common Name: Nodding Onion, Ornamental Onion Family: Amaryllidaceae (The Amaryllis Family)

Allium cernuum 'White Master' is a taller, white form of the B.C. native with exquisite flowers on shyly nodding heads. Flowers need to be near enough to study, near a path edge or in an open spot in your rockery. The foliage persists after flowering and bulbs will naturalize well. Pollinators love them. Benefits from afternoon shade when grown in hot summer climates. An unusual little gem. Few plants can offer the unique forms o ornamental onions.
