Allium moly (luteum) 'Jeannine'
Common Name: Golden Garlic Family: Alliaceae (The Onion Family)

A small, super hardy species producing open flower heads with glowing yellow flowers. A. moly hails from France, Spain, Algeria and Morocco. 'Jeannine' has bolder yellow flowers than the species that bloom earlier. It also produces two flower stems per bulb rather than one. Few plants can offer the unique flower forms of ornamental onions. Every garden should have Alliums. Don't fret when foliage starts to die back just before flowering. It's normal. Just trim the leaves.
