Searching Genus for Allium

A large genus with upwards of 700 bulbous species native throughout the northern hemisphere. Many are beautiful ornamentals.


Many species of Allium requiring cold treatment can be sown in late summer to early fall, with pots kept outdoors until late fall to early winter. This short, superficial cold treatment is often enough to have seedlings sprouted before the onset of winter; which can then be brought indoors and grown on.

ALLIUM flavum tauricum mix New Summer216
