Up to last time we were very short in good books about Alliums. Now we got the first such book - written by famous German botanist Reinhard Fritsch together with his Iranian collegue Mehrdad Abbasi and edited in Gatersleben, Germany at end of 2013. The book gives taxonomic review on Alliums of subgenus Melanocrommyum to which most of ornamental Allium species of high garden value belongs. Greatest adventage of new book is excellent keys accompanied by pictures, detailed descriptions and excellent pictures showing plants and important details for identification as well as maps of distribution. Unfortunately it concerns only Alliums from Iran and some adjacent countries where some species enter. We need something similar about other species very much, too. Pdf-copies are available and hard copies can be bought in the internet (at back of title page: http://pgrc.ipk-gatersleben.de/allium/ ).

This year we again offer new fully double varieties raised by our Estonian friend Taavi Tuulik, who found them in the wild on Hiiumaa Island after the Chernobyl disaster. They all are nice, fully double and well separable from one another by the flower shape, blooming time, and foliage. Most are offered for the first time and only by us. It is not easy to describe the shape of the flowers, but the pictures show you everything - and you can see that each variety is different be it doubling, the shape of the petals etc., therefore the descriptions are short.

For me it is not easy to decide when this extreme rarity from Turkey is more beautiful - in flower or in seed. Forms short and very dense inflorescences of slightly greenish white flowers between two wide leaves. Upper flowers with a slight purplish pink shade. At fruiting racemes remain very dense. A plant of steep screes; until our expeditions, was known only from the type locality, but we came across a new locality (BATM-305, LST-200).

From gardeners standpoint all bulbous Corydalis can be divided into two large groups: woodlanders and steppelanders. Woodland species prefer peaty soil which never dries out completely and a light shade. They must be planted as soon as possible. If tubers look overdried, we recommend you to soak them in water for several hours before planting. Eastern woodlanders from Siberia, Far East (here marked with c) are more susceptible to drying out than western woodlanders from Europe, Caucasus, Turkey (marked here by a). Corydalis solida cultivars (marked here by b), belong to same "a" group . Steppelanders or ‘bulb-belt’ species generally are sun-lovers and need dryer summer conditions (marked with d). We harvest them annually and keep out of soil in a bulb shed.
