Allium triquetrum

Allium triquetrum
three-cornered garlic

Common name three-cornered garlic
Family alliaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers white/green (June)

Hardiness is a bit of a puzzle with this one - the few references I've found describe it as a tender perennial. Yet a patch of 2005 seedlings survived our zone 6 winter, to bloom in June of 2006. Different from most other alliums we grow in that the strappy leaves are broader, and the individual flowers are larger. Each petal has a green stripe running up and down. Won't win a beauty contest, but worth keeping in the garden as long as it gets through our winters.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
