flavum ssp. tauricum - color views
this gallery we see a series of garden views snapped in the month of July,
illustrating that a garden full of alliums is a garden full of summer
In the photo above, we see several color forms
of Allium flavum ssp. tauricum, along with two
color forms of a unique variety of Allium carinatum ssp. pulchellum from
Greece in the center.
The view below is a close-up of the two color forms of Allium carinatum
ssp. pulchellum from
Greece, one a milky white with a blue tinge, and the other a rich
blue-purple color. This
particular variety is available from Pacific Rim Nursery.
In the photo
below are some 2003 selected forms of Allium flavum ssp. tauricum; very
varieties in the background, and a notable red-orange form that's been
dubbed 'Hot Cauldron'.
In the view below, taken in late afternoon, one gets the impression of
Allium flavum ssp. tauricum in
its many manifestations... a July explosion of innumerable deep and pastel
colors, in large or small
heads, all on dwarf plants typically 6"-8" (15 - 20 cm) in
height. The small, tight-headed pink plant
in the lower right has been dubbed 'Sukey Sue'.
