Garlic Mustard Alliaria petiolata

Garlic Mustard Alliaria petiolata

Flores > Brassicales > Brassicaceae

A plant that flowers the second year. Young leaves taste of both garlic and mustard giving the english name.

When flowering, the plant is grown high and thin. Identified by its color white and the small four symmetrical petals of the flower, bundled together with other flowers.

I usually see this flower in forests forming large patches.
