Also known as the Welsh onion, this perennial not only makes a showy display in the garden but can also be used in the kitchen for culinary purposes. The shoots and leaves can both be used to add flavour to salads or stirfries in a similar way to chives. The greenish cream flower heads are also attractive in the border where they will attract butterflies and bees. Height 60-70cm. Flowers May. Top size bulbs supplied.
