Society Garlic is an attractive clump-forming perennial plant that comes from South Africa. It makes an upright clump of narrow, gray-green leaves, topped with spikes of violet-pink flowers that keep on coming and coming all summer and fall. It thrives in zones 7 to 10, and even in cooler areas. In any zone at all it can be grown in a pot and stored in a frost-free place over winter. The more sun it gets the happier it is, and it grows well in dry areas, needed only minimal watering to keep it growing and flowering month after month. Plant it as a border along a path or bed, grow it in clumps in any sunny part of your garden, or put it in a pot near the kitchen door. It can be used as a mild substitute for garlic in any recipe, working especially well in salads and soups. Both the leaves and the flowers can be eaten, and the flowers make a wonderful edible garnish on a dish.

  • Easy grown clumping plant for a sunny spot
  • Stems of violet-pink flowers all summer and fall
  • Easily grown in any well-drained soil
  • All parts are a milder edible substitute for garlic
  • Thrives in heat and dryness

Plant Society Garlic in any well-drained soil. It grows best in sandy to loamy soils, but it will grow in any soil that is not wet. It has no pests or diseases, and it repels moles. Not only is it ignored by deer, the smell keeps them away from other plants they might otherwise eat. Water regularly during the first year, but after that watering is only needed at the height of summer. In cooler areas cut back the foliage as it dies in fall and put a mulch over the root-zone. No other care is needed for the reliable and easy to grow plant.
