Often called Elephant Garlic, this allium is actually not a garlic at all, but actually a leek! Whatever you call it, its enormous 4-5cm cloves are so mild they can be sliced straight into salads and stir fries. Worth growing for the mauve balls of flower alone, this species was popular in rural gardens for it's beauty and flavour.
