Onion Weed: Asphodelus fistulosus
Onion Weed, Asphodelus fistulosus, is an annual that is native to the Mediterranean region. However, it has become naturalized in California, Texas, Arizona and New Mexico where it has become, in some locations, an invasive weed. It favors sandy soils and Mediterranean climates. This Onion Weed was growing quite well on a sandy slope in the San Pasqual Valley where it made quite an impressive display.
