Description

Allium fistulosum, commonly called spring onion, Welsh onion, or Japanese bunching onion, is a clumping, slowly-spreading, evergreen perennial onion that is primarily grown as a vegetable for harvest of its tasty onion-flavored leaves. Elongated underground bulbs are barely thicker than the plant stem (some characterize this species as being “bulbless”). Hollow, leafless, blue-green flowering stalks rise to 24-36” tall, each stalk being topped by a globular terminal umbel containing tiny, yellowish-white flowers. Each umbel typically sports 50-100 flowers which bloom from late May to August. Common name of Welsh onion does not refer to the country of Wales, but is derived from the German word walsch meaning foreign.
