The genus Allium includes not only edible, but also ornamental species. In order to study current trends in onion breeding this paper analyzed the cultivars registered in the database of the Royal General Association of Bulb Plant Producers in 2009– 2018, as well as those included in the State Register of Breeding Achievements approved for use. The analysis showed that over ten years, 29 cultivars of ornamental onions and 108 cultivars of common onions were registered, many of which can also be used in landscaping. The largest number of cultivar samples was found in A. ascalonicum – 41, A. fistulosum – 36, A. ampeloprasum – 19 (13 of which are in the State Register of the Russian Federation and 6 in the KAVB database), A. schoenoprasum – 8, Allium × hybrida – 8.
