Description

Wild Garlic, also known as Meadow Garlic or Canadian Garlic, is a short (0-2’), perennial plant native to the eastern half of the United States. It grows wild in the countryside but can also be cultivated in backyard herb gardens. The edible bulb, covered in brown fibrous hairs, tastes a lot like an onion and the plant itself smells like onion when disturbed. The pink and white flower clusters generally bloom in spring and early summer from May through June. Occasionally, the flowers can be replaced with reddish bulblets. Wild Garlic can be found in moist soils, disturbed areas, meadows and along roadsides throughout its inhabited range.
