Allium canadense

Common Name(s): Meadow garlic, Canada garlic

Native to Florida

This native wild garlic is frequently found in ditches and open disturbed sites of the northern and central counties of Florida (Wunderlin, 1998). It occurs in the entire eastern half of the U.S., from Florida to Canada (Kartesz, 1999).

Meadow garlic’s oniony odor is especially pronounced after the road maintenance crews have mowed the right of way. Meadow garlic flowers in the spring.
