Allium ramosum

Pay no attention to the slight resemblance to Allium tuberosum.  This superior, non-invasive onion bears umbels of deliciously scented white flowers on tall stems in late spring and early summer, long before its thuggish relative blooms.  It's one of our favorites -- and it's virtually unavailable elsewhere.  Propagated from seed, from a strain widely cultivated in China.  3.5-inch pots.  Zone 5.  Photo: Wilhelm Zimmerling PAR
