Yorktown Onion

Updated: Aug 7, 2020

Scientific name= Allium Ampeloprasum. Allium is Latin for garlic, while Alpeloprasum means "leek of the vineyard".

Though the plant is always referred to as the Yorktown Onion here, there are several other common names. In print it has been called wild onion, giant wild garlic, and wild leek.

The Yorktown onion is not native to this country, it most likely came here as a seed during the Revolutionary War. Regardless of how it got here, it became firmly established as a wild plant in what is now York County.

The Yorktown Onion is protected by law, so do not stop and pick it along the Colonial Parkway or elsewhere.

In our Gallery you will find many creative renditions of our "famous" Yorktown Onion. Stop in and check out the pottery, paintings and photography of this captivating plant.
