Caption: Wild garlic. View of flowering wild garlic or ramsons (Allium ursinum) growing in a beech (Fagus sylvatica) wood in the spring. Wild garlic, a member of the lily family, is also known as bear paw garlic. It gets its name from the claim that bears eat wild garlic to regain their strength after hibernation. The word ursinum is latin for 'bear'. Wild garlic has been found to have many of the medicinal benefits of common garlic (Allium sativum) and is used to make herbal medicines. It is found in areas of damp woodland all over Europe and it is known to flourish on hillsides. Photographed in Northumberland, England.
