If you live in an area that gets cold but doesn’t have hard freezes, the Evergreen Hardy White could be a good scallion for you to grow. This variety is the most cold-hardy of cold-hardy scallions. You can let it winter over, but beware: your plants may bolt in the spring, in which case you’ll have lots of new seeds to gather, but nothing much else to harvest. When scallions go to seed, their flavor fades.
