Four Cornered Leek | Spring Garlic | Wild Garlic
This invasive plant is native to the Mediterranean area. First introduced to cultivation here in 1759, it was found well established in the wild less than a century later. With a late autumn to spring growth cycle, it has found a profitable niche here, and when coupled with a handy seed disposal relationship with ants, it gives the plant an advantage when establishing in new sites. Spring Garlic has a subtle flavour, similar to garlic or leek.
