Yorktown onion or wild leeks
I was fortunate enough to visit Colonial Williamsburg while in VA and got some yorktown onion bulbs from the local groundskeeper. Of course I'm not supposed to tell anyone. But, in my excitement, I forgot to ask how to care for them- plant, water, etc. Since I'm in CO I don't know if they will overwinter. There is little information online about how to care for them.
From one gardener, I was told that the larger of the alliums were leeks and if left in the ground, will flower on year 2. But these alliums were 5ft tall with huge heads. The yorktown onions I got are 3ft tall with slightly smaller heads. I do not know if they need 2 years to flower.
In the mean time I've put 2 bublbs in pots with a 3" stem still on. I know since they were in the middle of flowering it's not the ideal time to transplant, but had no choice.
So, anyone out there with any experience with these guys?
