Meadow Garlic -Allium canadense
Meadow garlic is native to eastern North America. It is an edible wild onion with a relatively mild flavor. The stem is topped by bulblets with sprouted, green tails. It’s called both an onion and garlic because while it is technically a wild onion, it has a very strong garlic aroma.
Fun fact - when rubbed on the body, it makes a decent insect repellant.
