description for "Alliums: Allium carinatum ssp. pulchellum f. album"
White-flowered keeled garlic is an intriguing white form of Allium carinatum. Allium is a large genus of ornamental bulbs related to the garden onion. All have flowers borne in tight or loose umbels, and all like full sun to light shade. Don't be concerned about onion odor; it's only faintly noticeable if the leaves are nicked or crushed. Make sure this plant has plenty of drainage to prevent bulb rot. -- edited by pbcouchman
