Allium tuncelianum [(Kollman) N. Ozhatay, B. Mathew & Siraneci] (Syn: A. macrochaetum Boiss. and Hausskn. subsp.tuncelianum Kollman) is an endemic plant species and has been proposed as the wild ancestor of garlic. This studyreports agronomic and morphological feature of a field experiment conducted during October 2013 to July 2014 underarid conditions of Turkish province of Diyarbakır to investigate the effect of 7.5 and 15 cm planting depth onmorphological features of the plant. The experimental results indicated significantly positive effects of shallow sowing(7.5 cm depth) on vegetative characteristics like plant height, stem diameter, leaf length, bulb circumference, bulbdiameter, number of bulbils per plant and bulb weight compared to deep sown (15 cm) bulbs. Flower diameter valuesvaried between 5.74 and 6.07 cm, bulb diameter 2.79 and 3.06 cm and bulb weight between 21.01 and 23.67 g,respectively. Deep sowing had positive effects on generative characteristics like leaf width, number of leaves per bulb,length of leafless stems and inflorescence diameter.
