Few-Flowered Leek ( Allium paradoxum )

I came across a large patch of this garlicky smelling flower I hadn't seen before in a Wiltshire copse. The triangular stem reminded me of Three-cornered garlic, but the flowerheads are much more "exploded" on long pedicels. So I got to googling for pics of woodland alliums, and came up with this invasive plant from the Caucasus/Iran. Seems it's doing well in Wiltshire and excluding local species as the carpet of its leaves was very dense...
