Tulbaghia violacea is a clump-forming perennial with a strong garlic smell, earning it its American common name of Society garlic. The smell comes from the crushed leaves or flower stems, making it unsuitable for use as a cut flower. However, apart from the garlic smell, the plant is worth growing for its beautiful large heads of lavender blooms held on tall stems from mid-summer to early autumn.
Fir best results grow Tulbaghia violacea in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in full sun. In colder regions plants may need protection from frost – alternatively grow in containers which you can move indoors in autumn.
