Wild garlic - or wood garlic - or bear leek

Allium ursinum, known as wild garlic, ramsons, wild cowleek, cowlic, buckrams, broad-leaved garlic, wood garlic, bear leek, Eurasian wild garlic or bear's garlic, is a bulbous perennial flowering plant in the amaryllis family Amaryllidaceae. It is native to Europe and Asia, where it grows in moist woodland.[2] It is a wild relative of onion and garlic, all belonging to the same genus, Allium. There are two recognized subspecies: A. ursinum subsp. ursinum and A. ursinum subsp. ucranicum.

In German this plant is known as Bär-Lauch = bear leek

I've had the leaves in a salad once or twice in the past. Only time I've ate it, though I see it growing often when I'm walking through woodland.
