Tulbaghia violacea, also known as society garlic or pink agapanthus, is native to South Africa and is a good rockery plant, which is easy to grow even in difficult, dry conditions.
It has a long flowering period and is spectacular in mass plantings.
It goes well with the deep purple foliage of Sedum fabarium or Sedum 'Purple Emperor', the light pink umbels of Sedum spectabile 'Carmen', the floating foliage of Stipa tenuifolia or the silky inflorescences of Pennisetum 'Karley 's Rose'.
Grow in the sun in fertile, light, humus-rich and well-drained sandy soil. Tulbaghia violacea is only moderately hardy, so it can only withstand short periods of negative temperatures around -10°C.
This very aromatic plant (leaves, stems and flowers) can be used in salads.
