Dian jiu is the name this cute little allium goes by in China.
These alliums are perfect for the sunny rock garden or anywhere where tall plants will not shade them. They flower best in full sun.
The dainty rose colored flowers appear in mid-summer. The 4” tall foliage looks like miniature chives and tastes mildly of onion.
Allium amabile may be the same plant.
This native of china was originally found in alpine meadows. Hardy in zone 4 so long as the soil is well drained in winter.
