A collection from Tibet by Daniel Winkler of this ornamental onion.  This is one of the Asian rhizomatous types making a nice clump of broadly grassy foliage in this case with leaves some 12"-15" long.  The flowers are in shades of pink and are open rounded umbels whose drooping florets look a bit like some of the fireworks seen in a Fourth of July evening sky.  Altogether an attractive species whose flowers usually coincide with the 4th so perhaps this year we will compare flowers to pyrotechnics.  Hardy to at least zone 6 and likely lower.
