Allium insubricum

AH-AIN

A super little bulb for the rock garden or trough. This species has strap-like pale green leaves and in summer, flowerheads with up to 10 or so pendent bell-like pink/purple flowers which last for many weeks. 

This species has heads of up to five individually large flowers of bright rose pink, hanging in clustered heads in summer. These are, as a general rule, often a little darker than narcissiflorum and the seedheads remaining nodding as they develop.

The flowers of this species are amongst the loveliest in the genus. Very scarce but readily grown, outside, in a sunny, well-drained site, in a fertile soil, where it will very slowly clump up with time.
