Allium togasii

Allium togasii    copyright  2000 Mark McDonough

In cultivation there are several forms of Allium togasii, all of which are delightful little
onions for the late summer and autumn garden.
All summer long they have neat tufts
of grassy foliage, then cover themselves with little globes of palest pink flowers in
August atop 4" - 6" (10 - 15 cm) stems.  There is a taller form that flowers a little
later in September to October, on stems that reach 16" (40 cm).  From Japan.
