Nodding Onion grows in nearly every state in the Union as well as in Canada, since it adapts well to many different soils. This hardy, pink flowered perennial thrives in rocky bluffs, forests, deserts, and prairies. Because nodding onion sprung up everywhere in the wild, it has a long history of use by Native American tribes and early settlers of North America. Traditional medicinal uses include treatments for congestion, fevers, and infection. The tiny bulbs could also be dried for culinary use in the winter. Because nodding onion is not as common today as in the past, it is a protected plant in some states.
