Onion Family Alliaceae

Submitted by PeterOrchard on Tue, 06/09/2020 - 09:43

Wild onions, leeks and garlics plus a couple of surprises all fall within the Alliaceae. Usually a single stem supports the cluster of flowers at the top. In onions and leeks this tends to be a globe whereas in leeks they are a collection of larger flowers  all falling downwards to one side. Most have the strong smell associated with culinary versions.
