Allium jesdianum

Allium jesdianum Boiss. & Buhse ssp. angustitepalum (Wendelbo) F.O.Khass. & R.M.Fritsch. was previously sold as A. rosenbachianum Regel (a very different species). It seems that the nomenclature is sorted out. I like this species as it has beautiful two-toned flowers (rose-purple and prominent white stamens), held in graceful hemispheres, on stems only about 24-30" (60-75 cm). There are several named cultivars, but I like this subspecies the best. Photo by Mark McDonough.
