Onion Weed

Onion weed (Allium triquetrum) is pretty edible which has many uses in the kitchen. All parts of the plant are edible; from the flower right down to the bulb and they make an excellent alternative to young leeks, or while you’re waiting to harvest the first of your garlic.

Onion weed thrives in wet and shady areas and is often found along creek edges, roadside drains and backyards. Onion weed reproduces two ways, which is why it’s so prolific in some areas. It spreads by seeds which form after flowering and also vegetatively, by the production of numerous underground bulblets.
