Nectaroscordum siculum (Synonym: Allium bulgaricum, Allium Dioscoridis, Allium Siculum), common name Sicilian honey garlic, looks very much like an Allium, and really only small differences (the number of veins in the petals), set it apart as a different genus.

Nectaroscordum siculum is an abundantly flowering bulb for a sunny or partially shaded spot. The garden designer Piet Oudolf successfully combines Sicilian honey garlic with different sorts of grasses. In our garden we’ve planted Nectaroscordum siculum in a sunny stinzen-meadow where, in early summer, it flowers in tandem with Allium atropurpureum to stunning effect.

Sicilian honey garlic prefers a loamy or clayey soil. If you're gardening on sandy soil then add leafmould or compost, and also clay minerals, to every planting hole. Treat them to a dose of manure every spring to ensure thriving plants. Nectaroscordum siculum is native to southern Europe, Turkey, Irak and Iran.
