Clump forming, garlic-scented plant from eastern South Africa hasattractive grassy silver/green leaves decorated with creamy-white stripes. It blooms in Spring through to Summer with pink/mauve flowers above the foliage on tall stems. The flowers are sweetly perfumed, particularly at night. Triangular capsules follow the flowers and split to expel small shiny black seeds. These plants spread by bulb-like rhizomes to form a dense clump. Grows well in full sun and well drained soil. Once established, has low water need but looks better with occasional watering. It will tolerate frost and considerable cold as long as the ground does not freeze deeply. In addition to its spectacular look, the health benefits of society garlic are now widely recognised.
