Allium proliferum These hardy little onions are very “prolific.” After planting them in your garden you will have onions every year for years to come! The blue-green leaves are round and hollow and will grow up to 3 feet in height. At the end of a leaf stalk, at the top of the plant, a cluster of bulblets will begin to grow. When the topsets become heavy enough, they will pull the plant over to the ground. The fallen topsets will take root and grow into new Egyptian Walking Onion plants, hence the name, “Walking Onion.” They will walk across your garden! In the ground, the Egyptian Walking Onion plant produces a small shallot-like onion that can be harvested. Once harvested, however, the plant will not grow back. If left in the ground, the onion will divide and form a cluster or clump of onion bulbs. New leaves and topsets will grow from the clump of onions each year. Once established, plants may be propagated by division or by planting the topsets. Egyptian Walking Onions are extremely hardy plants. You can eat greens, bulblets, and bulbs.
