Description from Chiltern Seeds
Welsh Onion, Allium, Ornamental Onion
A large genus of bulbous plants, most of which have a distinctive smell of garlic (onions, leeks, chives, and garlic are all members). However, many are worth growing for their flowers and, unless the foliage is broken, the odour is seldom offensive. Easily raised from seed.
In spite of its common name, this Onion originates not from Wales but from Siberia. At home equally in the flower garden, where the globe-like heads of yellowish-white flowers are attractive, or in the kitchen garden when it can be used as a substitute for Spring Onions. 2 ft. (Please note that we supply seeds and not bulbs of this bulbous plant.)
