This is a rather infrequent plant usually met with on roadside banks. Although a member of the cabbage family, it has the smell of garlic on being crushed.

All names: Alliaria petiolata (M.Bieb.) Cavara & Grande; Alliaria officinalis Andrz. ex Bieb.; Alliaria alliacea Britten & Rendle; Sisymbrium alliaria (L.) Scop.
