Allium is a genus of flowering plants that belongs to the Allieae tribe of the Alliodeae subfamily of the Amaryllidaceae family. There is a dispute over which plants exactly belong to the genus due to its complicated taxonomy of evolutionary lineages. Consequently, estimates for the species range from 260 to a little under one thousand[1].
