Description

Family Amaryllidaceae
Originating from S. Africa.

  • Beautiful, fragrant lilac/cerise-pink star-shaped flowers appear all summer until autumn.
  • Stunningly variegated aromatic semi-evergreen foliage that smells of garlic, can be used in cooking
  • Easy to grow and reliable

An invaluable plant for all-summer-long floral display, forming slowly spreading clumps of slender dazzlingly white variegated chive-like perennial foliage. Its beautiful deep lilac pink flowers are held on slender stems well above the foliage and can appear at any time over a long period from summer into autumn. The profuse, scented floral display of tubular starry flowers, widely flared at their tips are deep pink in bud and open to a rich, almost cerise lilac, they are held on slender stems, making a swaying mass of flowers over the foliage followed by green seed pods which darken to a tan brown.

The foliage has a pungent smell of onions or garlic and can be used in cooking or salads, similar to chives. This form of ‘Society garlic’ looks great amongst spikey Mediterranean plants where it looks great planted in drifts, contrasting eye-catchingly with darker plants such as Ophiopogon (black mondo grass) or purple phormiums. Equally at home in traditional English borders,  great in pots and in coastal gardens. Easy to grow in most soil types in full sun.

Height and spread after 3 – 5 years 50cm x 50cm
