    Sub-group Onion Family - Alliaceae
    Description

    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.
