I thought I'd kick off the Allium 2011 topic, even though way too early for signs of plant growth outdoors. A NARGS member was inquiring about Allium tricoccum over on the Pacific Bulb Society mail list, so I'm jumping in with a photo of variegated forms of Allium tricoccum (Ramps) found by Darrell Probst in Massachusetts.
There's lots of interest in Ramps, including ramps festivals and dinners celebrating this pungent edible wildflower, so google to heart's delight to find out more, but here are a few links.
