It's one of the best short stem allium from Iran and Trans Caucasus. Always in the wild the plants have a single exclusively wide and beautiful leaf, but in garden can develop two and even three leaves. Needs full sun and soil dried well. A king of Alpine gardens!
Iran. It's other short stem species with a big globular umbel. Needs the same conditions like one above.
Allium altissimum GOLIATH
The Latin name of this species can be translated as "the highest". Indeed it is a plants with bright green leaves and tall stem in the flowering time reached 170 cm. high.
Allium altissimum GRAY GOLIATH
Growing this kind received from Dutch grower I noted that it is not a clone but plants from wild population with some difference between. Among these plants I selected a clone with more gray leaves and offer first time these plants under the name GRAY GOLIATH. New introduction.
It's a rare species grown in my nursery only. Collected in high meadows of Armenia in region Lori. Strong stem up to 1 meter high supports a nice umbel composed with long dark blue flowers. There is in the price list of my nursery only.
Grows in the wild in dark deciduous forests of Crimea. This unusual condition rare for members of the genus puts them in absolutely exceptional place among alliums. Possible it is a single large allium which is well in shaded places of gardens. The flower stem I m high. Long time flowering. Propagation with seeds mainly. This allium often is confused with Allium nigrum cirillii which grows in Crimea too, but differs well from Allium decipiens ssp. quercetorum and needs absolutely other ground and light conditions.
Native from central California state (USA). White flowers in the beginning become purple then. Every plant has a single tubular leaf.
A. rosenbachiana rosenbachiana x A. sarawschanicum CHINORO. It has an unusual form of the umbel where seed pods have very long stalks and shorter ones of flowers. Has awards of KAVB for beauty and perfection.
N. Caucasus, near Piatigorsk town. Has a tall but strong stem 1 m. high (!!!) with absolutely round umbel of dark violet. Flowering in the middle of summer. First time offered and think that I am single who offer this plant. New introduction.
A. protensum x A. nevskianum. Periodically I am able to offer limited quantity of bulbs of this incredible allium hybrid of my selection. A huge umbel up to 30 cm in diameter like A. protensum, but flowers are much more colorful with purple stripes along petals.
A tall and vigorous hybrid, hardy in outdoors. I wanted to have in my collection an example of large hybrid of Holland selection and have come to conclusion that it is the best.
Collected near Kislovodsk town, N. Caucasus. The plants form rich clumps with long conical bulbs on the dry slopes of the mountains. A wonderful decoration of Alpine garden in late time because flowers up to first night frosts! Color of flowers is white shaded rose.
A small population on west coast of Caspian sea. Endemic of Dagestan. Now in the wild are registered near 2000 plants only. My stock is grown from seeds. Has relatively short leaves and flowers with nice triangle softest rose petals. The true rarity in the wild and in the gardens!
They are seedlings of plants collected in Iran (SLIZE 98-216). Flower stem is very short. Umbel of fine construction composed with long petal flowers.
Allium hirtifolium ALBUM
A white form of species which is one among the tallest alliums. They reach in flower time up to 1,5 m. The leaves are dark green shorter than leaves of many large alliums. All plants cultivated now are descendants of bulbs collected in Zagros mnt. by expedition of Brian Mathew in 1963 year.
Allium hollandicum ALBUM
There are two errors in one traditional name. It is an allium of unknown origin selected in Holland with very light lilac flowers.
Allium karataviense IVORY QUEEN
Ivory white flowers in umbel of the ideal spherical form. At my opinion it has the most beautiful leaves among alliums.
From Tadzhikistan. Has wide and beautiful leaves, like A. karataviense, but the stem is relatively long and reach 40 cm.
North Caucasus, Stavropol region. Flowers on long stalks appear in the end of the summer. New introduction.
It is a result of a crossing between two short stem alliums A. alexejanum x A. newskianum. A single seed got from this combination has given a wonderful plant resembling Allium GIMLI but with wide leaves and good propagation because has blood of A. nevskianum. Often one bulb can form two stems.
A beautiful allium with exclusively dense spherical umbel very hardy in outdoors. The high merits of this allium was used by selectors and many famous allium hybrids have "blood" of this species.
Native from seaside steppe of Crimea. Long bulbs divading every year forms clumps like Allium saxatile, reaching in the flowering time 20-25 cm tall only. Has a very late flowering in September. Leaves start germinating in autumn. Prefer full sun and good drainage.
Selected clone of popular European species with more long flower stalk. 30 cm high. Flowers in mid summer.
1,00 for 10 bulbs
My plants collected near Kislovodsk town, N. Caucasus. Small plant with long flower stalks and contrast purple stripe along white petals. It needs many sun and rocky grounds. Excellent in pots for Rock gardens and exhibitions!New introduction.
Allium (Nectaroscordum) meliophilum
In Crimea there are some point population and as I know flowers of each have color more or less intensive rose purple. My plants grown from seeds taken in central part of Crimea have very light flowers, next to white. The length of stalks has intermediate length between A. tripedale and A. siculum. Best under trees in semi shade position.
Endemic of flora of Armenia. The greatest among nectaroscordums, has the stem 1.5 m high. They have up to 50 large porcelain like bell shaped flowers. Prefer more sunny position comparing with other nectaroscordums.
A large form of Allium victorialis so synonym of the name is A. victorialis ssp. platiphyllum. Grown in the wild in Russian far East, Korea and Japan. Ideal if were planted in shady place where not disturbed long time they form nice clumps with wide leaves and tall stems crowned with white round umbels. New introduction.
Allium oreophilum AGALIK'S GIANT
At my opinion it's the most impressive clone among all varieties of Allium oreophilum collected and offered firs time by Janis Ruksans. Twice larger then garden varieties grown before! The flowers have a very intensive coloring.
Allium PER WENDELBO
Probably it's an excellent form of A. jesdianum, think the best form among all ones grown now in gardens.
Collected in Armenia. Umbel is spherical with very densely disposed flowers. Long lobes of anthers are notable well. It's robust allium 80 cm tall with firm stem. The flowering is in the middle of summer. This species is alike A. ampeloprasum, but its leaves always is looking up (not arced). I am a single seller of this beautiful and well grown in garden species.
I noted that this allium found near Garni (Armenia) and identified by me as A. ampeloprasum nevertheless differs from A. ampeloprasum got from European sources although absence of stem bulbs makes me think so. Now I have to change my point of view, because in 2011 year first time the plants have given multiple small bulbs on the stems. So think it's other form of very beautiful allium pseudoampeloprasum unknown in gardens.
This allium not too impressive in wild collected by me in S. Armenia has turned in garden condition from Cindarella into true princess. Now it is a lovely allium of my collection and I have spent 5 year and enough of efforts to get good garden stook. Flower stem is more then one meter tall! In the beginning of flowering in umbel you see combination of green and purple flowers, then the umbel become entirely red purple. The flowering in the mid summer. New introduction.
Leaves are the same coloring like below, but they are erect
and most multiple then leaves of ssp. rosenbachianum. Stem 1 m high. Flowers wine red. This allium was found by me some kilometers away from the population of A. ros. ssp. rosenbachianum near Razjon village, Tajikistan
Wonderful allium found by me in Tadjikistan and identified as
the true A. rosenbachianum. Has nothing in common with alliums often sold under this name.
It has wide often plicated leaves of unusual salad green coloring. Umbel 19 cm across, rose purple, on stem 70 cm long.
Long time I have been selling this hybrid between two known ssp. of A. rosenbachiana without any name. It resembles A. rosenbachiana kwakense, but is able to propagate regularly giving large bulbs only.
S. Armenia. This allium has a wast territory of habitat in The Caucasus region and many shades in color jf flowers in differing populations. This one has the dark purple umbel on the stem 50 cm high. It flowers in the beginning of summer. New introduction.
Allium sarawschanicum CHINORO
Flowers have deep purple pedicels. Leaves are bluish. Relatively late in the group of large alliums, so that leaves is rarely damaged by spring frosts (a problem for many other alliums in Lithuania).
Collected by me in Tadjikistan. The most large form of A. stipitatum I have seen and the most large allium of my collection.
Allium x STIPINEVA
A hybrid made by Lithuanian grower E. Dambrauskas who has crossed A. nevskianum and A. stipitatum. The plant has accamulated signs of these not alike species. It's relatively tall allium but the umbel more reminds of A. nevskianum. For the first time in my catalogue
It was collected in a highland of Armenia. In the wild they are modest plants 20 cm high only with 3-4 relatively big starry flowers. Now in my garden they have nothing with plants I saw in wild. Stem is up to 50 cm high with a nice multi flowered umbel. Offered by me only.
Found near Sevastopol, Crimea and sold by me before as a wild hybrid of different alliums of saxatile complex. Now it has got a botanical name Allium tarkhankuticum. The most tall and late flowering allium among alliums of saxatile complex. A very notable sign is the common coat surrounding a clump of divided bulbs.
Possible it's a champion of the length of the flowering time. My plants start flowering in August and flower up to first frosts and snow in November.
From N. America. Curious bulbs reminded small potatoes. The young bulbs they form on long stolones. Star shaped flowers of soft lilac coloring. Flowering in midsummer.
Now some varieties of large alliums with spherical white umbel are grown in gardens. This is the largest.
Found in Karacharvo-Cherkesia, N. Caucasus. They are smaller comparing with garden varieties and have very light blue flowers. In the wild they grow under trees but sunny position in garden here gives a good result too.
Native from Himalayas. Has astem up to 1.0 m high with umbrella like leaf. Is able to pass winter in soil, but possible dry keeping in storage is preferable. Plants propagate with long stolones giving young tubers on the tops of stolones.
I lift tubers every autumn and keep them in a dry storage up to time of planting in April-May. I have information that the tubers are able to pass winter in ground here if the tubers put deeply. Flowering in June.
Arisaema FENG SHUI
My first attempt of the crossing of arisaemas. A. jacquemontii x A. ciliatum. Thanks to A. jaquiemontii hybrids are hardy in outdoors and have spathes disposed above the leaves. In other aspects it's like to very robust A. ciliatum. A few.
A long area from Far East up to Africa. Needs more sun comparatively with many other arisaemas and grow well in open places. Tolerated to winter frosts.
In many aspects it's like to Arum italicum and grows in the wild in the same condition often one near other. Leaves are spotted brown, sometime with silver or yellow patches. Walking along one small river in Krasnodar region (Russia) I tried collecting plants with the most bright and decorative leaves among thousand grown in river valley. So a lover of decorative leaves can find many variants of pattern.
Widespread in Caucasus and Trans Caucasus. Muscari shaped plants with relatively wide leaves. The sterile flowers disposed on the top of the vertical raceme are violet. The fertile ones change color from green to violet and brown in the end. They need full sun and good drainage.
A plant usual for Iranian flora but small populations I found on extreme South of Armenia. A few.
A species from Turkey where they often grow in big massive in wet places sometime even covered with water in spring time. The plants have spike of striking color, rarely seen among bulbous plants. It is not a fast increaser and gives new bulbs slowly. More easy way is a propagation with seeds. Young plants are able to flower 5-6 year after sowing. Always in a great demand.
New introduction from Armenia where these plants grow in wet places even covered with water.
