It is a very robust, easy to grow variety. Very winter hardy, and rather tasty, although I prefer Farinto for taste. Tadorna is very handsome in its second year, with deep blue upright foliage. with a slight corcscrew twist to it. I had a few runts that were too tiny to eat in the winter and I transplanted them in the flower border in February, where they are looking quite splendid now, better than Allium Purple Sensation :-)
