Description from Prairie Moon Nursery: Allium stellatum is edible, although the flavor is considerably wilder and more pungent than its commercialized onion cousins.  This plant has a strong onion-like scent when crushed; this makes it an undesirable food source to most mammals, including deer and rabbits.  Small bees are the main pollinator.
