Allium roseum   Rosy Garlic DD I

Allium roseum

This is much commoner in the South of England than I had thought and once I found my first clump, kept seeing it in rough verges and in dunes. It is an introduction from the Mediterranean and it prefers the Southern Coasts of England with little to be found in the North of England, Scotland or Wales and none at all in Ireland.
