Tri-Color Society Garlic
Tulbaghia violacea 'Tricolor'
|Description||Dainty heads of lilac-pink flowers on stalks rise above blue-gray foliage with thin white margins. New foliage has a pink tinge in early spring. Brushing against plants releases a garlic-like aroma. Adds wonderful texture and color to borders, and requires little care once established. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Water when top 3 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Year-round; heaviest from spring to fall.|
|Mature Size||Foliage clumps reach 1 ft. tall and wide; blooms reach 2 ft. tall.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container|
|Design Ideas||With its grassy foliage and tall flower stems, this plant is a delightful addition to the mixed border. Use it in the middle or front of the planting, and contrast it with companions that have bold foliage or a dense habit.|
|Companion Plants||Coneflower (Echinacea); Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia); Catmint (Nepeta); Blue Fescue (Festuca); Shasta Daisy (Chrysanthemum)|
|Care||Thrives in average to humus-rich, well-drained soils; avoid wet, soggy sites. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Will go dormant under drought conditions. For a tidy appearance, remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge.|
