Allium senescens var glaucum
3rd June 2007
One of my favourites of the small onions. All of them have their good moments, but so many of the species spoil it by throwing a hissy fit of crappiness at just
the wrong moment, and this one doesn't. Excellent evergreen foliage with a good blue grey colour and rather chive-like pink flowers once the spring has advanced
beyond the indecisive stage.

This year it was still going strong in October, and the leaves were still hanging on in good condition.
