|These galleries depict some of the rhizomatous Allium hybrids that I've named over the past 10 years. The hybrids involve one or more of the following species; nutans, senescens (both subspecies glaucum and ssp. montanum), albidum, rubens, flavescens, and angulosum. These species freely hybridize with each other. Using a process of seedling selection, it is possible to begin isolating some truly unique and superior garden plants. The rhizomatous alliums are particularly useful as bold garden plants in border perennials, because they have attractive foliage clumps that remain healthy all summer long, unlike the bulbous alliums that typically dry up and go dormant in the summer.|
About these galleries:
Rather than use a page of tiny thumbnail images that require lots of back and forth loading of individual images, the galleries listed above each contain 4-8 larger size images, each gallery taking about 30-40 seconds to load using 56k dialup internet access. Navigation to the other galleries in this series, is available directly within the gallery pages.
