Extra wide-leaved form of Allium nutans

I remember years ago seeing a picture of a wide-leaved nutans grown by Mark McDonough
http://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/files/Allium/Allium_nutans_lg_leaf_form_wk5.jpg and I remember thinking that would make a good vegetable! A couple of years ago Mark kindly sent me seed of a mix of Allium nutans crossed with Allium senescens. The result was a hotchpotch of different forms, but one stood out with much broader leaves…it looks promising…..the next breeding project perhaps?P1400067

  1. How did this end up, were you able to grow anything interesting from its seeds? I would love to grow some of the nutans x senescens hybrids, I think they would have a lot of potential.
