Garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata)
Garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata)
Also known as Jack-by-the-hedge or Hedge Garlic.

The genus name, Alliaria, comes from the garlic or Allium-like odour on new foliage when leaves are crushed, an unusual scent for a plant in the mustard family. The aroma usually fades as the foliage ages. The species name, petiolata, means that leaves are attached to the stalk by a simple leaf stem (petiole).

"Above the Quick set blooms 'Jack by the hedge'
His white flowers shine all down the narrow lane
In April sunshine still a welcome pledge
To show warm weather brings wild flowers again"
From 'Spring' by John Clare
