Allium nevskianum Vved. ex Wendelbo is from Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan where it grows in dry mountains at high elevations. It is a superb dwarf species but with immense balls of bloom, somewhat like an enlarged Allium karataviense Regel, but with deeper colored blooms. The first two photos by John Lonsdale.
