Nodding onion is a showy native onion that is also a great addition to a perennial vegetable garden. The grass-like leaves can be harvested any time and eaten raw like chives or cooked as green onions. Flower clusters bloom pink in early summer on top of a one foot tall stalk. Unlike most onion flowers, they are tilted and appear to be "nodding", hence the common name. Very easy to grow and drought tolerant once established, bulbs can be divided in winter and eaten as onions or replanted elsewhere.
