    Very tall allium introduced in 2006. Flowers are baseball sized and open when plant stems reach into the 4' range. Stems continue growing reaching 6'+ with good growing conditions. Adequate mositure and good drainage essential to keeping long stems straight, stiff, and upright.
    My impression was 'neutral at best. So far, just not impressive.
