Allium senescens Blue Eddy was featured in the November/December 2018 issue of "Horticulture" magazine in a full-column section of the article "Plamts We Love." This cultivar was bred by NGA member and allium expert Mark McDonough, @AntMan01, who also bred Allium Millenium, Perennial Plant of the Year for 2018, and a favorite of mine.
