BanquetowVery nice A. paczoskianum Rafa, one I've seen lots of photos of but one rarely seen in cultivation, it has a "flavum-esque" look to it, a subtle explosion of buff colored flowers. Do you know the original source of this plant from your friend?

Allium insubricum doing very well here this week,
Looks like allium guttatumRoland
We received a few years ago seed from the U.S.A. as allium cneorum, and we were told it woud be the nord-american form of a. obliquum. (NARGS seed list 2002-2003). After growing a few years we saw it was different from obliquum in a lot of things:bulbs of obliquum are pinkish and cneorum was pure whiteflowering of cneorum is 2-3 weeks later than obliquumobliquum has much bigger flowersobliquum is much higherSo, seeing the difference, with the story, some buyers wanted to sell it in there catalog.We never checked if name or story were correct..... sorry
Mark - Are Allium insubricum and narcissiflorum hardy with you? I have grown both from seed many many times and invariably get Allium cyathophorum v. farreri. johnw
