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.
