Wild Leek prefers typical woodland conditions: medium wet to medium dry soil and full to partial shade. It has reddish stalks reaching heights of 8" in the spring. The early foliage dies back late spring before the white to creamy-white flowers appear in June or July. 

The bulb and stalk of the Wild Leek have a long history of being eaten by American Indians and still today this is a popular species among foragers, who will often call them "Ramps." The seeds of the Allium tricoccum will bounce when dropped onto a hard surface; a seed dispersal mechanism of the plant.
