Allium parryi is a species of wild onion known by the common names Parry's onion and Parry's fringed onion. It is native to the coastal mountains of southern California and Baja California. It is also known from the southernmost reaches of the Sierra Nevada. This onion grows from a reddish brown bulb roughly a centimeter long. It produces a short stem up to a maximum height of about 20 centimeters and a single cylindrical leaf which is generally a bit longer. The inflorescence contains up to 50 pink-veined white flowers which turn darker pink as they age. Each flower has narrow tepals less than a centimeter long.
