This description is for Allium porrum: Allium porrum or Garden Leek is mostly grown as vegetable, rather than for ornamental purposes, however it does have clusters of quite attractive white flowers which grow in the second year, so they do add some interest to a boring vegetable patch. Leeks have a milder taste than onions and are great for cooking with. Dried leeks have been found in archeological sites of Ancient Egypt and are also represented in Egyptian wall carvings. The leek was also the favourite vegetable of Emperor Nemo who thought it improved his voice. The leek is also the national symbol of Wales.
