Plants resembling grasses

Wild garlicWild garlic
 

Wild garlic A perennial from bulblets that emits a strong garlic or onion smell when crushed. Seedlings resemble those of a grass, but have hollow, round leaves. Mature plants have round, hollow leaves that arise from a bulb. Bulbs are round to egg-shaped with a papery outer covering. Smaller bulblets may form at the base of the bulbs, and fibrous roots are also attached to these bases. Leaf blades are 6 to 24 inches long, 2 to 10 mm wide. All leaves have a scent like that of garlic or onion. Flowers are produced at the top of flowering stems that are slender, solid, waxy, unbranched and 1 to 3 feet tall. Small greenish white flowers occur on short stems above aerial bulblets.
