Allium victorialis whole Allium victorialis close

With rather broad leaves reminding you a little of Convallaria majalis (Lily-of-the-valley) Allium victorialis with greeny white flowers was our last flower of the day. It is a variable, circumpolar plant and some varieties have been studied extensively in Japan for medicinal anti-thrombosis and anti-cancer properties.
