Allium nevskianum
Common Name: Turkestan Onion Family: Amaryllidaceae (The Amaryllis Family)

It makes an excellent, well behaved groundcover, with larger flowers and longer leaves than other members of this group. Well suited to our coastal climate, it prefers consistent moisture while in growth and tolerates summer drought. Few plants can offer the unique flower forms of ornamental onions.

Geogrpahical Origin:
Asia and the Pacific - Southwest Asia and Asia Minor
