This is the coveted true species unlike the usual Allium sikkimense which is what you get from most seed exchanges.  Ours came from Ian Christie in Scotland and with Ian's name as provenance, there is little doubt.  Besides we flowered it and it is correct!  Thin grassy leaves in dense tussocks with small headed blue flowers in late summer.  A Chinese species that is not one of the bulbous summer dormant types but appreciates moisture during the summer and is quite easy despite its relative scarcity.
