A question about a recipe: Fried Eggs with Asparagus, Ramps, and Oyster Sauce

I have a question about the ingredient "ramps, whites parts only, sliced into thin rounds" on the recipe "Fried Eggs with Asparagus, Ramps, and Oyster Sauce" from thirschfeld. What' ramps?

Neither ramps nor garlic chives have appeared where I live. I've used scallions as a sub, with added garlic.

If you can't find ramps--and you won't at this time of year--substitute some garlic chives. It won't be exactly the same, but it will be a reasonably good substitute.

Ramps are a wild onion that is found in early spring. You can find out a lot more here:
