Wild Garlic

Allium tricoccum

Ail des bois


Vulnerable species

  • Wild Garlic, also called ramps or wood leek, grows in rich, moist woodlands.

  • The broad, flat, smooth, light-green leaves come from a conical shaped bulb.

  • Because it is edible, and because it is over-harvested in the natural environment, it is considered a threatened species.

  • Wild leek is one of the most over-harvested wild foods, leading to declines in some areas as several studies have shown.
