4 thoughts on “Allium paradoxum var normale / Snowdrop onion”

  1. Is this a three-cornered leek? TCL or allium triquetrum would look like this but it has a green line in each petal but these aren’t opened so they remain unseen here? They are a delicious foraging treat here in UK which sweet flowers should all be foraged and eaten, so as to maintain their number in managed woodlands.

  2. That explains it. I was confused! My immediate thought was: wait a minute, this doesn’t look like paradoxum since there’s supposed to be one or few flowers on a paradoxum’s stem, not that many, so this might be a variation of TCL instead, possibly? Well, you make sense, thanks, Stephen.
