Me too. Park's Seed used to have seed for them. Don't know if they still do.

thanks so much. i couldn't think of the name but that is correct, but i have only seen them in blue, which i was not fond of since they planted all over the ca. highways.

Jessaka, I love alliums and they are very tough and hardy. They even grow in the worst clay soil we have and I planted them so far from the house that they have to get by on only rainfall because I'm not going to drag a hose (or carry a watering can) 300' to water them.

Those pink ones are beautiful. I've never grown pink ones, but have grown blue, purple, white and yellow ones.

I've linked another photo that includes some pink-flowered ones, but shows some of the other colors as well.
