Native or Not Present

This tentative map is based on our own research. It may have limited data on Canada and/or Mexico, and there is some subjectivity in our assignment of plants as introduced vs. expanded. Read more in this blog post.

This species is also native to Mexico; we have yet to build this portion of its map.


We recommend avoiding the common name "wild garlic" because it is vague, referring to a number of different Allium species. Most frequently it refers to Allium vineale. Unfortunately, the term "prairie onion" is also ambiguous, also potentially referring to textile onion (Allium textile).
