Allium monanthum / Himenira ヒメニラ

   
Allium monanthum is a delicate figured perennial herb inhabiting light forests in fields and mountains. Leaves, two in number, emerge from ovate bulbs at the bases of flower stalks, 10-20cm in length, a cross-section being in the shape of a crescent. Flower stalks delivered from the bulbs grow to 6-10cm in height with single, occasionally two, white or slightly red-tinged flowers on them. Perianth lobes are 4-5mm long, long oblong, or oblong-ovate. As many individuals lack stamens, they reproduce by division of the bulbs. Bloom time: March-May.
