Allium cultivar - Image Page
Allium flavum ssp. tauricum 'Cinnamon'
represents a drastic color break
with little bell-shaped flowers of deep burnt
red-orange. It can be a fussy grower, but when
well grown, it really is a knock-out. This selection
has also proved invaluable by introducing a
whole range of hot colors, with the seedling
progeny showing a high percentage of deep red
and orange-flowered types. Most have strong
silvery foliage and compact habit as well.
Here is a nice clump of 'Cinnamon' growing in
Marsha Russell's garden in Littleton, Massachusetts.
This plant eventually all but died out in Marsha's
garden. I still have my plants, although it does seem
to be sensitive to too much moisture, and suffers too
from "scorch", when periods of soft, rainy weather
is followed by blazing hot sunny days, resulting
in damage to the buds. My plants managed to
flower well during the summer of 2000.
