Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Mountain Onion, Pink Lily Leek
A perennial bulb that sometimes goes under the name Allium ostrowskianum, this showy-flowered, diminutive onion is native to the mountains of southeastern Europe and Central Asia. Rounded heads of bright purple-pink flowers appear on short stems in early summer. They are preceded by two strap-shaped basal leaves, which wither before the flowers emerge. Several cultivars are available, including the robust 'Agalik Giant'.
Give this little beauty full sun and fertile, well drained soil. It is perfect for rock gardens, patio plantings, and path edges.
