Allium roseum

Allium roseum
Allium roseum, commonly called rosy garlic, is an edible, Old World species of garlic native to much of Europe and the Mediterranean region, northern Africa, and western Asia; and naturalized in the Azores, and elsewhere.

A. roseum grows naturally to about 1.5 feet high in well-drained soils, blooming from late spring to early summer.
Inflorescences are umbels. The loose, fragrant florets are about 3 inches long, having six pallid petals apiece, that are pinkish to lilac in hue.
The smell and flavour of the bulb is powerful enough to drive squirrels and browsing deer away from gardens, where they are planted as ornamental flowers. For this reason, they are suitable as companion plants to tulips and the like.
