The Red Welsh is an old form of the perennial bunching onion with very decorative red stalks and a slightly stronger flavoured than the white variety. It is also slightly hardier. It is distinguished from the bulb onion by its round hollow leaves and only slight bulb formation. They are an interesting addition to a vegetable plot or herb garden. The flowers are attractive to bees, while the whole plant is an effective insect repellent. It is very easy to grow from seed, extremely hardy and pest resistant. It will grow from cold regions right through to hot, tropical areas.
