Abstract

In the form of flowers and leaves Onion-weed shows a marked resemblance to the cultivated onion types, especially the shallot. They are members of the lily family although belonging to to a different genera - the true onions being the species of Allium. Two notable differences are the absence of any conspicuous bulb formation in the case of Onion-weed, and in fact that it does not develop the characteristic smell of the garden plant.
