Trying this oddity, from bulbils received in trade. Sure enough, they were doing their silly walk by late spring. By next year, they were running rampant through their section of the vegetable garden. I haven't figured out what to do with them (in a culinary sense), so I pulled the majority of them, and moved just a couple bunches over to a corner of the garden where they can do their thing without getting in the way.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
