Allium maximowiczii alba


This may be my favorite allium at the nursery. It flowers extremely heavily, all but covering the foliage in early summer with small round heads of white blooms, but what really sets is apart from other onions is the foliage. The leaves are narrow and grass-like, as silvery as a good fescue, and unlike most bulbous onions that go dormant right after flowering, the foliage stay looking terrific most of the summer.
Less than six inches tall for us, clumps up nicely but doesn't run or seed around, perfect for everything from a trough to the front of a perennial boarder. Zone 4.
