Notes:

The bulb will begin to split and form new bulbs. The bulbs will send a vine that is very lacy and will vine spring through fall. My mother called it an Ôonion bulb vineÕ. Would love to know its name and origin! Thanks

    Looks like a species in the Bowiea genus, this could be the climbing onion (B. volubilis). Check out the link below for more information. Best wishes! https://davesgarden.com/guides/articles/view/2313
