When I did the previous post on ramps (Ramps, Prized Onion of the Mountains) the links I found surprised me.  I had never seen the seed heads.  It must have been all the invading hostas that hid the ramp flowers and seed heads. I cleared out some hostas and finally saw them for myself. All these years I didn’t even know they were there!

This one came up in the cleared area.  I was thrilled to finally see it.

Then I noticed these among the hosta leaves.  No wonder I found ramps growing much further down the slope.

The green seeds are just beginning to form.  The numerous seeds should produce a productive patch.

It’s exciting for me to finally see these shiny, blue-black seeds.  This seed head will be harvested and sent to Missouri where my son and his wife want to try to grow them.  Now I know for a fact that there are many others that will keep multiplying in my patch.

  1. OK, I’m finally catching up on some of your old productions and they never fail to fascinate me. Your site is soooooo interesting, especially since these things are in my backyard, too. I love it! LIL
