Allium flavum
Common Name: Fragrant Yellow Onion Family: Alliaceae (The Onion Family)

Notes:
Allium flavum has open flower heads like exploding bright yellow fireworks. It is lightly scented and grows in the Mediterranean basin from France and Morocco east to the Black and Caspian Seas. Few plants can offer the unique flower forms of ornamental onions. Every garden should have Alliums. Plant in multiples of 3, 5, 7 or more. Don't fret when foliage starts to die back just before flowering. It's normal. Just trim the leaves.
