Welcome to Allium Central.  It is the goal of this area to be the single largest, most comprehensive resource  dedicated to the genus Allium on the web, with specific focus on taxonomy and exploring the ornamental potential of alliums. This site will serve as a venue for alliacious topics and features, including allium hybridization, photo and drawing galleries, species checklists, identification aids, allium links and bibliographic resources.
