Even better is Lilium martagon (Martagon lily) as it will grow in quite deep shade, perfect for the forest garden (yellow bulbs below). The picture of the Martagon lily flowers is from my forest garden and has a flowering Hablitzia climbing over it!!

I found the bulblets similar enough in flavor to garlic that it could be a garlic alternative. What’s more, is that you don’t have to pull, cure, clean, and separate out the cloves as you would with actual garlic. A real labor saver!

Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Too bad that's an hybrid, and not a fixed cultivar.
