I like how the developing flower buds, which appear in late June, extend into pointy spears, giving quite a different look from that of other alliums we grow.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following areas: side garden, curve garden (front lobe), rock garden, orchard nursery area

Seed for this plant is included on my seed trade list
