Society Garlic

Tulbaghia violacea variegata


Hardy Plant Bloody Dock

Dainty heads of lilac-pink flowers on stalks rise above blue-gray foliage with thin white margins. New foliage has a pink tinge in early spring. This plant grows well in wet or dry circumstances and makes a good rock garden or container plant, in a stream or along the edge of the pond. Society Garlic has been said to help rid gardens of mole problems, as brushing against plants releases a garlic-like aroma. Plus, it is deer & rabbit resistant. The flowers are lilac in color and the plant will bloom from midsummer to early fall.  Adds wonderful texture and color to borders, and requires little care once established.
