Sierra Onion

Delicately pink colored with a green stripe on each petal. There is a different species with the same common name. It is an alpine plant, much shorter with white flowers. This is the true Sierra Onion,   Allium campanulatum  (Amaryllis family).   It can vary to a darker shade of the same color.
