Allium flavidum is an Asian species of onions native to Xinjiang, Altay Krai, Mongolia and Kazakhstan. It grows in rocky areas.[3]

Allium flavidum has narrow bulbs up to 1 cm in diameter. Scapes are up to 45 cm long, round in cross-section. Leaves are very narrow, shorter than the scape. Umbel is large and spherical with many white or pale yellow flowers.[3][4][5][6]
