Please could someone ID this pretty little flower? I suspect that it may be an Allium, but I'd like to know its name if possible. It's only about 5" tall max. with a flower head of under 2" across - another flower is on its way, too. Thanks.




it is spritz, possibly A. acuminatum

it is i wish i had some rather than the yellow 'moly' form. Some are white and come up before the moly.

Not sure either but it looks to me like Allium ostrowskianum....maybe?

I'll check both names out - thanks. :-)))

I think it's A. ostrowskianum....but where it came from is a mystery!

Thanks, both. :-)
