The Scottish Rock Garden Club....... For People Who Love Plants
I posted the following question about a plant I got as Allium hirtifolium about 4 years ago but, in those days there was no Wietse and Onionman at hand, so I ask again now. Is this hirtifolium?http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=3028.msg95152#msg95152
Hello,Nice to hear from you!How are things in Moscow?I'm very curious how the Alliums will survive the winter in Moscow, and hope to see some beautiful photos in spring next year!
The possible cernuum x stellatum hybrid came as seed from a guy in Oregon described as follows: "Wild Nodding Onion from coastal PNW. From slopes of Mt. Heahkahnie." I don't know if he first grew it in a garden, but I think it unlikely to have crossed with stellatum.....I will try to ask....Wallichii: they certainly thrive on wet...well adapted here and in the monsoon climate at home...and, to Maggi, I had a chuckle at your comment...
Just got fantastic Christmas present from my great German friend - Reinhardt Fritsch. It is his book wrote with assistance of M. Abbasi from Iran. It is latest update of Melanocrommyum Alliums from Iran - most ornamental Alliums.
it is possible to buy this book?and where is it for sale?
