I thought of posting these fotos I took in April this year in Bremen on
tha Banks of the river Lesum that flows thru Bremen. The few plants in
my garden are miger.
Exery year I go to this place to collect young leaves before flowering.
A pesto of Bï¿œrlauch adds a special note to salads, baked potatos
etc.etc. A few days after collecting the leaves I go there again to
enjoy this beautiful site.
Enjoy

flowers are out and open....

I have never seen this Allium but as per my information:
This species produces flat leaves (not cylindrical like onion) like garlic,but much broader about 5 cm wide and even narrowed into a petiole. Two leaves are produced per bulb appearing with the flowers. Leaves are almost 1/4 the length of scape; The bulbs unlike onion have surface coating splitting into parallel fibers.

It has such interesting names as Bear's garlic. Hog's garlic, Gypsy onion, Ramsons and Buckrams.

Usha di, Prof. Singh ji,
i did not take fotos of just the leaves, will do next time.
Prof. Singh ji has answered the questions.
I cropped one of the fotos, in which there are many leaves, surrounding one Urtica plant.
Just had a look in my garden and made these fotos.
Attaching fotos of a leaf, and of the seedcapsule, which looks very decorative.
