Allium karataviense


(20 cm)

Round pale pink  flowers (diameter 12 cm) from June. After flowering a decorative seed bud appears. Blue-grey leaves with purple bottom, even beautiful after the flowering. The English name, Turkestan onion, indicates that dry stony places for this bulb are just fine. Plant them along a path between Periwinkle and Lavender or in pots. Also beautiful  on the cemetery , along with grey Thymus praecox ‘Pseudolanuginosus and purple Violets.
