Allium flavum ssp. tauricum 'Green and Gold'

This cultivar is among the first of the orange-flowered
"tauricums", which has served as a seed parent to
produce a whole range of variable color forms.
Unlike most "tauricum" cultivars which have very
silvery foliage, this one has plain green foliage.
However, the soft orange flowers combine well
with the green foliage, and it's very free-flowering.

Like all "tauricums", the flower color ages over the
duration of the 3 - 4 week flowering period in July,
changing color during the process.  In the early
stages of flowering, the yellowish buds yield a more
yellow-orange glow, compared with the soft orange
tone seen later on.  This cultivar is a good clumper.
