Garlic mustard in flower

During the second year of its life, the leaves off garlic mustard plants (Alliaria petiolata) are lighter in colour with a slightly different shape from the leaves in the first year. The plant can grow up to 1 metre tall and has small white flowers followed by multiple seed pods. The leaves from the top of the plant with flowers or flower buds are the most palatable.
