Wildflowers of New York

Wild Leek

A photographic collection and brief reference to help identify Wildflowers found in New York

Wild Leeks
- Allium tricoccum

Lily Family

AKA: Ramps
2 or 3 onion scented leaves wither before the flowers bloom. The bulbs have an onion like flavor.

Large beds are easily found in May and digging up enough for soup is no problem. While I haven't missed making soup I have missed the flowers.

Found: Rich moist woods
Height: 6 - 18 inch
June - July bloom time
