    I don’t think so, but if you break off a bit and it smells of garlic, that’s clinch it. If it doesn’t, it’s not. The smell’s unmistakable.

      It is not filed garlic because the leaves are circular. That plant is actually the poisonous plant : White Snakeroot. It is believed to have killed Abraham’s Lincoln’s mother.

        One of the ways you can tell a plant is edible or not is if it smells like garlic or not. If it smells like garlic you are safe. If not, poisonous pant most likely. 2 plants I know that look like edible wild garlic is Deathcamass and Star of Bethelem, but they lack the typical garlic smell. They have also been known to kill livestock.
