Ramps resemble scallions in that they have a white bulb at the bottom of the stalk, although the leaves are long, oval, and almost silky, with pointed ends. They often appear with distinctive reddish-purplish streaks along their hearts. After the leaves die back, usually some time in June, a scape, which is a leafless flower stalk growing directly from the root, appears. Clusters of small white flowers bloom in the summer. During late summer, the plants produce their three lobed pods, which gradually open to reveal shiny black seeds in small bouquet-like clusters.
