Hey there, how ya doin? I'm speaking at Bloomfest 2000 in Frederick MD this weekend, so we're a little early with our weekly feast for your eyes.
Allium triquetrum is a very early blooming Allium species. In the garden it forms a clump that quadruples in size every year.
The green striped, white, pendulous flowers look like miniature lilies. The foliage is persistent most of the growing season and reaches 8"- 12" while the flower stems reach up about 4"- 6" above that.
They can take some shade, but seem to thrive in full sun with average to moist soil.
