My son Mike asked me what this plant is called.Any ideas?
Is it garlic?




Its not garlic and I do recognise it but cant bring a name to mind. do you know what its leaves are like?
reminds me a bit of butterbur but this is white and they are usually an Elastoplast pink..

Almost like a white ragged robin or maybe dianthus or sweet william. Pretty flowers but hard to tell without leaves.

He saw it at the side of the road in Wales. He said it looks like White Butterbur. Thanks!

I would like to see the leaves as well. The flowers look like those of White Snakeroot, but that's not in season now.
