Artist's Description

’n Foto van die affodilknoffel (Allium neapolitanum syn. Allium cowanii ,Daffodil Garlic) in ons tuin op Jansenville in die Oos-Kaap van Suid-Afrika.

The name Allium, sometimes spelled as ’Alium’, comes from the ancient Romans and means ’onion’ or ’leek’. This name was taken over by Linnaeus for the entire genus. Ornamental alliums are members of the onion family. They are showy, hardy, easily grown and come in a wide range of heights and colors.

Allium neapolitanum, formerly listed as Allium cowanii is a perennial bulbous plant. It is native to Southern Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. It bears large heads of pure white flowers in late winter or early spring and is suitable for borders or pots. They typically grow to a height of between 30-40 cm (12-18 inches). Its delightful fragrance makes it ideal as a cut flower.
The Allium neapolitanum is ideal for containers, mass plantings and borders. They have a bloom period of about 3 weeks, and bloom in late winter to early summer. Alliums prefer to be dry during their dormancy.
Some common names are: Naples Garlic, Daffodil Garlic, False Garlic, Flowering Onion, Naples Onion, Bride’s Onion, Ornamental Garlic.
