Wild Garlic- Allium canadense

AKA- Meadow Garlic, wild onion

Its native range is widely distributed mainly east of the
Rocky Mountains from Canada to Central Florida.

Wild Garlic forms grass-like clumps of leaves topped with rounded clusters of star-shaped pink or white flowers that bloom from late spring into summer. The plant produces a strong, garlicky onion-like odor when leaves are crushed or mowed. Wild onion is weedy in disturbed areas and can be found in meadows, thickets, fields, forests, and lawns... and now, YOUR GARDEN

Wild Onion grows about 18 in. tall and can spread quite freely when well sited. Both leaves and flowers have a delicious mild flavor while the bulb is crisp and mild with a pleasant flavor that is a leek or garlic substitute, according to taste. The plant spreads by bulb offsets, aerial bulblets, and seed. 

These small bulblets should be planted immediately upon receiving them
