Allium sativum ssp. ophioscorodon


(100 cm)

Green onion with curled stem from June. For months a spectacle to watch: what should that become? The curl shoots out when de bud opens: all green and then black berries. Beautiful planted a group in the back of the border or in the maintenance-friendly garden as described in A. aflatunense. In heavy soil they grow  higher than on sandy soil. Bulbs are as garlic cloves, edible.
