Allium decaisnei is a species of onion found in Israel, Palestine, Jordan, and the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt.[2] It is a perennial with an upright scape. Umbel is loose, with long-pediceled green flowers, most of them nodding (drooping).[3][4][5]

Some authorities categorize this taxon as a subspecies of A. stamineum,[6][7] with others consider the name a synonym of A. flavum.[8]
