Allium robustum

Allium robustum Kar. & Kit. - a little known (thus expensive) species, perhaps related to A. atropurpureum Waldst. & Kit. In A. robustum the tight, domed heads are strikingly hued cherry red, noticeably dark wine red in bud, but opening to a lively cherry red when open. The central ovaries are dark grayish. Blooms in June, on stems that varied from 18"-24" (45-60 cm). Photo by Mark McDonough.
