allium regelii is again an allium that is very difficult to grow. It stays 1 bulb for about 7 years now, and I have about 3 or 4 seeds every year, but they never germinate

Today I have been visiting some allium growers in Noord Holland and made some photos from there fields.....Allium 'Summer Drummer'Allium 'Spider'Allium 'Summer Drummer' low angle.
Wietse, see this post to see an allium identified as A. carolianum in the Tien Shan.....http://www.srgc.org.uk/smf/index.php?topic=4985.msg135688#msg135688 and see the following page to read that QuoteThe name "polyphyllum" is a synonym of A. carolinianum.

There are some allium we bought the last years from several addresses, but we do not see any differences between them.Can someone tel me the difference between allium platicaule and allium tolmiei var. platyphyllum??And is there a picture of allium carolinianum, because what we have as carolinianum is something else. and what is the allium we call carolinianum? (see photo below)

Or possibly a hybrid of Allium ampeloprasum?Allium 'Spider' is awesome, can you remind us what the hybrid cross is? Will this one become available commercially! I'm assuming the masses of yellow in the field behind it is Allium moly?In the 3rd photo that shows the low angle of Allium 'Summer Drummer', what is the white Allium species growing in endless rows?

I think your plant looks more like A. falcifolium, which has broader leaves and longer/larger flowers that Allium siskiyouense (syn. A. falcifolium var. demissum). Love the look of Allium schubertii x nigrum (pink form); will this beauty be coming to market sometime in the future???On the A. crenulatum x falcifolium hybrid, please tell me more about it; where did the hybrids occur, is the bed of said hybrids shown in the photo seed grown or do they represent bulb divisions. The two species are somewhat close morphologically, so it is hard to say whether they truly represent that hybrid.

allium schubertii x nigrum rose hybrid has again a big problem, because it is not making any ofsets and stil not growing from seed. so I think it will not be commercially available very soon. And that is a shame because it's a real beauty I think.
