Allium egorovae
Allium elburzense Award:
  AM (Award of Merit)

Origin: N Iran

Shown by: Ivor Betteridge

The plant was shown as Allium elburzense and some doubt was expressed at the time about the naming of the plant shown. The award was subject to confirmation of the correct name.

In 2013, a detailed review of the genus in Iran was published by Fritsch and Abbasi. Images in this lengthy revision underpin an earlier suggestion that the material exhibited represents A. egorovae instead, a species described in 2000. The P.C. awarded to the same plant on 1st May 2010 also needs altering.
