This perennial bunching onion can be harvested year round in mild winter climates and is easy to propagate by division.. It infrequently self-seeds, but clumps will spread slowly in the garden. When grown as an annual, sow seeds in early spring for summer use. Plant 1/4” to 1/2” apart and 1/2” deep. Provide regular shallow cultivation to reduce weed competition. Best performance occurs with consistent moisture during the growing season. The common name "Welsh onion" does not refer to Wales; instead, it derives from a near-obsolete botanical use of "Welsh" in the sense "foreign, non-native." The species is native to China, and naturalized in scattered locations throughout Eurasia and North America. Other names include green onion, salad onion, bunching onions and spring onion.

Allium fistulosum, Welsh Onion
