Nodding garlic is an edible, honey-producing and ornamental perennial plant. Bulbs, flowers, and young leaves are edible. Although very aromatic, its taste is milder than chives and onion. The thickening of the stem and flowering begin in the second year, displaying delicate pink flowers arranged in sparse, hanging umbels. Nodding garlic flowers from May to July to the delight of pollinators. This plant was an important source of food for the Salish First Nation and the indigenous people of the northwest, but it is now a rare and endangered species in North America. For a better germination rate, it is recommended to carry out stratification 6 to 8 weeks before spring sowing or to do direct sowing in the fall.
