Allium prattii is a plant species native to India, Nepal, Sikkim, Bhutan, Tibet and parts of China (Anhui, Gansu, Henan, Qinghai, Shaanxi, Sichuan, Xizang, Yunnan). It is found at elevations of 2000–4900 m.[1]

Allium prattii has a scape up to 60 cm tall, round in cross-section. Leaves are flat, linear or very narrowly elliptic, usually a bit shorter than the scape. Umbel is hemispheric with many red or purple flowers.[1][2][3][4]
