Allium scorodoprasum - BSWJ15921

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
One of our collections from Croatia, when we found this onion growing in an extensive meadow in the cool upland area near Homolyac, at 800m. The so called sand leek, which has a wide distribution from as far east as Korea and Ireland in the west, where it was possibly introduced. Forming slender stems to as tall as 90cm in rich soils, but only around half of that where we found it. Where it was in full flower accompanied with plenty of its well known curious bulbils in late June. Easily grown in full sun to light shade in a drained soil, probably best avoiding too rich a soil.
