Probably not Allium narcissiflorum

Got seed for A. narcissiflorum from the 2009/2010 exchange, started them last spring, and the small plants are now blooming. However, they don't look much like the photos of the species that I've found, which typically feature clusters of fewer but much larger flowers. Any idea what it is I'm growing?

Rob, you are correct, this is not Allium narcissiflorum, it is the usual suspect, ubiquetous usurper of Allium species, Allium cyathophorum var. farreri.

Thanks! I'll have to try again for the real thing.
