Oriental Garlic, or Allium Tuberosum, is a perennial herbaceous plant that belongs to the Amaryllidaceae family. It grows from a little, oblong, firm, fibroid bulbs that originate from a rhizome. The plant may reach up to 50 cm in height. It produces about 2-5 fragrant, narrow, grass-like, green or greyish-green leaves (20-50 cm long) that arch down. When crushed, the leaves have a strong garlic or onion aroma. The white flowers grow in globose umbels on flowering stems that are about 25-60 cm tall.
