Set B6 - Wild Flowers Series 2 - card information

6. Wild Garlic
(Allium, ursinum L.)

6. Wild Garlic

This plant loves the damp places by rivers and in shady woods. It has a strong onion smell, especially when bruised. It has a bulb and is related to the onion. Often the plant covers great areas, and in May and June the umbels of white star-like flowers, rising above the broad leaves, make a striking carpet below the trees. It is known also as Ramsons and Broad-leaved Garlic.
