Wild Garlic (Allium Canadense) is found throughout the tallgrass prairies in open woods and thickets. White to pink flowers bloom from May to July and it can grow as high as two feet. The long, grass-like leaves can reach 18 inches in length. The leaves are flat on one side and just slightly convex on the other. This species differs from other Allium species in that the leaves are not hollow. Tolerates all conditions well; very hearty plant. Does extremely well on it's own when established. Deer Resistant.
Hummingbirds, butterflies and bees are attracted to Wild Garlic while rabbits and deer tend to avoid eating all the Allium species due to the onion scent and the spicy taste of the foliage.
While its flowers attract bees and butterflies, the sharp taste of its foliage makes it deer resistant. Wild Garlic foliage and bulbs are edible, but they taste more like an onion than like commonly sold garlic cultivars. It is drought tolerant and prefers well-drained soils in full sun. Plants spread by bulb offshoots and seed.
How To Grow From Herb Seed: After danger of frost, sow seeds in open ground well exposed. Cover seeds 1/8 inch with loose soil. Keep moist until germination. Regular cutting helps keep plants vigorous and healthy and encourages spreading. Keep flowers picked to discourage dormancy in warm weather. Divide clumps every 2-3 years.
