Tulbaghia alliacea

Tulbaghia alliacea (Tulbaghia alliacea)

Taken at Oxfords botanic gardens yesterday.
These are in the porch area as you enter the greenhouses, so they're not completely tender.

Lovely Meanie, I love tulbaghia's & grow several, some in flower at the moment. They go through the winter most times here in Cornwall. Violacea is a good one to grow outside. Although the foliage can smell oniony sometimes the little flowers have gorgeous smells.

I didn't notice any fragrance on this one, although it was rather busy in there....
Good to know that they can be hardy too. As a bulb I guess that it will be an easily grown specimen.

Oooo very pretty....I know this one well. It is a bulb from South Africa. It is part of the lily family.

There is a town called Tulbach in the winelands of the Boland in the Western Cape Province. Maybe that is where it gets its name from? :-)

Thanks Milky and Delonix!
The porch area as you go into the glasshouses always has something that is interesting and borderline hardy, and is constantly changing.
