California Native Onions


Allium unifolium, One-Leaf Onion.

Interesting that the common name and the latin name are the same. Someone must really think that one-leaf aspect of the plant must be really important.

They have pretty flowers. I wonder if they taste good? They bloom all the way through to July. Of course, they’ll die back in winter, and then the bulb expands and grows and comes back next spring. When not in bloom, they look like a grass.
