German Garlic (Allium Ssp. Senescens Montanum, Syn. Allium lusitanicum) is an old German cottage garden plant. This bulbous plant, which grows wild on mountain meadows (hence the name mountain garlic), is endangered but also cultivated in the
regional home garden. It's cultivated in the Westphalian region up to now.

The German name "Johannislauch" presumably comes from the old custom that the bulbs are harvested on June 24, the so-called "Johanni-Tag". Allium Senescens Ssp. Montanum shares its name with Allium x Cornutum which can't be grown from seeds as it produces sterile blossoms and is only propagated vegetatively.

The bulbs, as well as the foliage (like chives but stronger onion taste), can be used. The approx. 1 cm large bulbs arranged in rhizomes have a sweet taste with a peppery scent and a hint of garlic. Whoever wants to harvest as many as possible (every plant forms a rootstock with several bulbs which can be easily divided), however, should hold back with the foliage harvest to not unnecessarily deplete the plants.

The beautiful, pink blossoms are also edible raw and have a fine garlic flavour which lets them come into their own as a decorative element in salads or on nibbles. Generally speaking, this variety is also usable as ornamental onion because of its beautiful stature.

German garlic can be sown outdoors, but we recommend indoor preculture starting in early spring. If you want to collect as many bulbs as possible (broadleaf chives produces more than one bulb per plant), you should avoid harvesting the leaves as not to stress the plant unnecessarily.
