Description for Himalaya Onion

Himalaya Onion is a deciduous bulb that grows to 1.0 meters high by 0.5 meters wide. It grows in Himalyan foothills between 2300-6600 metre. It sports hemispheric umbels of purple flowers.
In Nepal, Himalaya onion is often used for cooking, especially for flavouring dal (lintal) boiled legumes. Rather uniquely, jimbur leaves are usually employed in the dried state and fried in butter fat to develop their flavour.

Planting and care

An easily grown plant, it prefers a sunny position in a light well-drained soil. It tolerates temperatures down to between -5 and -10c.

The bulbs should be planted fairly deeply. Most members of this genus are intolerant of competition from other growing plants. Grows well with most plants, especially roses, carrots, beet and chamomile, but it inhibits the growth of legumes. Members of this genus are rarely troubled by browsing deer.

Caring for Himalaya Onion

    If you want to produce clumps more quickly then put three plants in each pot. Grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter and plant them out into their permanent positions in spring once they are growing vigorously and are large enough. Make division in spring. The plants divide successfully at any time in the growing season, pot up the divisions in a cold frame or greenhouse until they are growing well and then plant them out into their permanent positions.
