I have several ornamental allium of the droopy flower variety. I wanted to move them and they have produced tons of little bulbs/onions. I fear I'll have them growing in their original space for years to come as I'll never find all the little pearls when I dig them up! So my question is, are these bulbs edible just like pearl onions??

I am not sure...native americans ate prairie onion, but I would not take the chance on eating the ornamental ones.
