'Hot Molasses' is a seedling from 'Cinnamon',
selected for it's bright, deep red-orange flowers
and stocky, heavily silvered foliage and stems.
In the image above, the little bell-shaped flowers
spill out of the silver, strongly veined spathes.  Also
notice the very long spathe segments, a typical
feature of Allium flavum and it's subspecies.

This is a poor image, the photo taken on a dark
overcast day.  However, it gives some indication
of how deep and rich the flower color is.  Similar
to it's parent 'Cinnamon', the cultivar 'Hot Molasses'
is a slow grower, with thick, stocky growth, taking
years to build up into a 5 - 6 crowned cluster of
bulbs.  By seedling selection, I hope to discover
a more gregarious, clump-forming type with the
same vibrant flower color and silver foliage.
