Allium spirale

provided by wikipedia EN

Allium spirale, also known as Korean aging chive,[2] is a plant species native to Korea, Primorye, and parts of China.[3][4] It is cultivated in many other regions and has for some reason obtained the common name German garlic.[5] Other common names include spiral onion, corkscrew onion, and curly chives.[6]

Allium spirale forms a cluster of narrow bulbs up to 15 mm in diameter. Scape is up to 40 cm tall. Leaves are flat, long and narrow, shorter than the scape but only about 5 mm across, generally twisted in a helical fashion. Umbel is hemispheric, densely crowded with many flowers. Tepals pink with a dark red midvein.[3][7][8] It

Habitat

Allium spirale typically grows on dry slopes, loess, steppes, and places with significant amounts of sand, gravel or stone.[3]
