Discover the wild relative of chives, native to Europe and Asia - Allium ursinum. Known by many names such as Ramsons, Buckrams, Wild Garlic, Broad-leaved Garlic, Wood Garlic, Bear Leek or Bear's Garlic, this perennial herbaceous monocot is a favorite of the brown bear and wild boar. The Latin name ursinum is derived from the bear's taste for its bulbs and their digging habit to get to them. However, its similarity in appearance to poisonous plants, like the lily of the valley, has led to poisoning cases especially in Europe. All parts of the plant are edible, its leaves can be used in salads, herbs, soups, or even as a pesto substitute. Even the flowers and bulbs can be consumed, and it's used in making herbed cheese in Turkey. But beware, mistaken identifications can have serious consequences. Learn more about this intriguing plant, its habitats, the edibility, and its similarity to poisonous plants. Discover Allium ursinum, the wild garlic of the British Isles.
