Perennial herbaceous frost-resistant plant. The bulbs are cylindrical or slightly conical, 1.5-2 cm in diameter, covered with a thin film membrane, attached to a horizontally or obliquely growing rhizome. Stem is thick, 25-70 centimeters high, in the upper part with two, usually winged ribs, down to flowering, straightening at the beginning of flowering. Leaves in the number 6-8, close at the base of the stem, linear with rounded tips, 1-2 cm wide, up to 30 cm long, bluish, obtuse, sickle-shaped, smooth. The sheet plate has a small helical bending around the longitudinal axis. Leaves are fragile and juicy, on the fracture they give off mucous juice, weakly pointed to taste. The umbrella is spherical, rarely spherical, multiflorous, dense, almost capitate, until flowering, drooping. Leaflets of hemispherical perianth pink or pink-violet with a little noticeable vein, 4-6 mm long, obtuse, oblong-ovate, internal slightly longer than external boatlike. The filaments of the stamens at the base between themselves and the perianth are fused, one and a half to two times longer than the tepals, subulate, internal at the base usually bidentate, 2 times wider than the outer ones. The post is issued from the perianth. The natural area covers the southeast of the European part of Russia, Siberia and Central Asia. It grows in the steppes, on meadow and stony slopes. The slime bow begins to vegetate almost immediately after melting snow, so its leaves are suitable for eating early in the spring, when there is no other greenery yet. It uses it the same way as other types of onions: like greens in salads, and also add as spices to various dishes. It contains a large number of vitamins. The slug bow is considered a very good honey. Blooms in August.
