Egyptian Walking Onion
(Allium proliferum) Perhaps the most perfect onion for permaculture gardens, edible landscaping or anyone looking for a low maintenance food crop! Perennial in zones 3-9 this onion can be grown reliably in almost all U.S zones. Also known as tree onions and perennial onions, the plants produce bulbs at both the top and bottom of the plant, you can harvest and eat all parts of the plant, bottom bulbs, stems and the bulbils or mini bulbs produced at the top of the 2-3 foot stalk. The weight of the top bulbils will eventually cause the plant to flop over in Fall and take root in a new place just a few feet away, it truly “walks” across the garden over the years if you let it! Bulbs should be planted immediately upon receiving. A truly carefree perennial vegetable!
