Description for Tulbaghia Fragrans, Sweet Garlic
As is common to many members of the onion tribe, when their leaves are bruised they produce a distinct garlic smell, hence its common name. The flowers are borne in an umbel. Each flower has six narrow tepals.
A characteristic of the genus is that there is a "corona" a raised crown-like structure at the centre of the flower. This may be small and scale-like or may be larger, somewhat like the trumpet of a small narcissus.
Tulbaghia fragrans is a slender, erect, clump-forming, perennial to 25 cm. The inflorescence is an umbel of pink to mauve-pink, occasionally white, strongly fragrant, tubular flowers. It flowers at the end of winter when the leaves are still dormant. It grows best in the semi shade and is used medicinally.
Plant it en masse in sun or semi-shade. Due to the fact that it is deciduous it can be interplanted with an evergreen perennial such as Bulbine or grasses.
Planting and care
Agapanthus planting is best done during the fall or winter in warm climates.
Caring for Tulbaghia Fragrans
- Harvest by cutting them with kitchen scissors or shears just below the surface of the soil â€“ donâ€™t cut midway through the chive. This is due to the fact that most of the flavour is in the base, and it also encourages more growth of the plant outwards (cutting at a midway point will kill the rest of the chive remaining).
