Wild onion

Next to our Ash tree is this volunteer wild onion (Allium vineale).  I thought that was what it was anyway and did some online checking to make sure.  I found picutres that looked the same as what I have here.  In doing so, I found that it is also called crow garlic or wild garlic and has become invasive and is not native to North America.  It also is resistant to herbicides.  I have never yanked it because I think that it is unique looking and has never seemed to become a problem where it is.
