Muscari comosum

Not only Italians use "Leopoldia" in cooking. I have met English people who 
did.  As for the taste, it is quite soft and not like onion or garlic. It 
resembles mushrooms somehow. It is a lovely plant that has its charm, on a 
tall stem oblong brownish flowers are topped by tufts of sterile violet 
flowers. Very easy to grow and undemanding and easily propagated from its 
rather large round back seeds in autumn.  Sun, well drained alkaline soil 
and a hot summer dormancy are its requeriments.
