Allium sativum var. sativum
Phenology: Flowering Jun–Jul.
Habitat: Roadsides and disturbed areas
Allium sativum var. sativum is quite variable. It is possibly derived from A. longicuspis from central Asia. It generally reproduces by bulbels (cloves) as it produces few, if any, seeds. Prior to anthesis the scape of A. sativum var. ophioscorodon (Link) Doll is coiled into 1–2 wide loops. Both varieties are cultivated in North America and are usually found along roadsides and disturbed areas wherever garlic is cultivated. The bulbils make accidental introduction very easy.
