Allium tricoccum - Apr 10

native, edible, sun - shade
eastern and central North America

The broad leaves of this very distinctive species, which look much like those of lily-of-the-valley, appear in early spring. Leaves wither before the clusters of small, creamy-white flowers appear in June or July. Prefers moist, rich soil and part shade (but should grow well in full sun as long as the soil is moist). Often grows in large beds in the wild. A popular wild edible in many parts of its native range, it is considered by many to be the best of our native onion species for edibility. The bulbs and tender young leaves have a mild onion flavor, and are used in many of the same ways as other onions. An indication of the plant's popularity in many parts of its native range is the annual Ramps Festival held each spring in the Great Smoky Mountains.
