Both the Plant List and Cat of Life ref. Kew as:
Allium siculum
syn. Nectaroscordum siculum

http://apps.kew.org/wcsp/namedetail.do?name_id=296603

RHS sometimes differs (behind?)

So it should remain as an Allium. I tried the ITIS and had no luck on finding information on either name. It did have allium, but not Allium siculum?

It looks like Allium siculum is correct for now Green Grin!

Hi Janice, I changed the common name but can't find anything much further on this. The syns. seem to agree w/Kew. The Pacific Bulb Society has some comments here http://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/AlliumSp... under Allium bulgaricum. Nice pics by the way.
