Pretty variation on this cottage garden favorite, palest lilac flowers shading to soft purple in the centre. The clusters of flowers show themselves off on long slender stems above very fine grassy foliage, easy to blend into a mixed flowering border or use them to edge a vegetable garden (they're edible!)
Tulbaghia 'Purple Eye' - society garlic DESCRIPTION: Evergreen perennial with long, slender grey-green foliage, much thinner than the violacea form, aromatic when crushed. (The plant is related to garlic). Starry pale purple flowers with darker purple centres from spring to autumn. USE IN: Borders, as a ground cover and in rockeries. Also suited to container planting. Leaves and flowers are edible and may be used to replace chives or spring onions in salads. PLANTING: Plant in full sun in the garden. Hardy and drought tolerant but will thrive in moist conditions. Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. CARE: Fertilise during spring, divide at this time also to allow the plant better access to nutrients. Plant rhizomes elsewhere in the garden, it's a great way to grow your garden! HEIGHT & WIDTH: Up to 50 cm H x Up to 50 cm W.
