False Garlic

False Garlic (Nothoscordum bivalve)

False garlic, found in the Southeast and central United States, looks similar to wild garlic and onions but lack the onion\garlic smell and is common in lawns, pastures and open wooded areas.

This plant, in most areas, blooms in the early spring through early summer, producing cream colored, sometimes reddish tinted flower. The False Garlic, being one of the earlier blooming plants, is easily spotted in lawns and is often mistaken for wild onions or garlic.

False garlic is a member of the Lily family (Liliaceae) which include Onions, Asparagus, Aloe, Tulips and the common Day Lily. This plant is found in the Southeast and central U.S.
