Tulbaghia violacea

Society Garlic

Tulbaghia violacea is commonly known as Society Garlic because its leaves and bulbs are edible like garlic and chives but without the bad breath. Society Garlic is a clump forming herbaceous perennial growing 1-2' tall with narrow grayish green leaves similar to traditional garlic or chives but a much more showy in appearance. The sweet smelling large clusters of lavender flowers have notes of hyacinth and are good to use as a cut flower. Hardy in zones 8-10.
