Allium flavum var. tauricum 'Earthworks'
an earthy pinkish-beige that clumps up
Photo by Mark
The flower color in the 'Earthworks'
selection is hard to
accurately describe, an odd shade of pale pinkish-beige.
The pedicels are decidedly pink, most evident close to
the stalk. The overall impression of the silver-stemmed
clumps in bloom, is that of warm, earthy, pinkish-tan carpet,
which compliments pink and pale yellow flowers growing
adjacent. Notice too, that the florets are indivually small
and narrow, not the waxy bell-shaped flowers on most
of my selections, but the abundance of bloom and neat
habit more than compensate. Click here to see a large
grouping of this selection in flower.
