Ramps (Allium tricoccum), packet of 20 seeds

$3.95

Family: Onion (Alliaceae)

Hardy to Zones 3 to 7

Clumping, bulbous perennial flowering white to 12 inches, native to the hardwood biome of eastern North America.  Ramps are tasty and sweet when added to stir-fries and soups, and are also used fresh as a condiment.  Given their early spring expression, they have been traditionally (TWM, Native American) used as a spring tonic, cleansing to the blood and loaded with vitamins and minerals.  The plants prefer to grow in moist, loamy soil of cool woodlands or shade garden. Sow seeds in fall for germination in the spring.  Do not transplant until bulbs form.  The clumps may readily be divided in the spring.  Space plants 8 inches apart.

20 seeds per packet
