Society Garlic Seeds (Tulbaghia violacea)

Price for Package of 10 seeds.

Tulbaghia violacea, also known as society garlic, is a species of flowering plant in the family Amaryllidaceae, indigenous to southern Africa (KwaZulu-Natal and Cape Province), and reportedly naturalized in Tanzania and Mexico.

Growing to 60 cm (24 in) tall by 25 cm (10 in) wide, it is a clump-forming perennial with narrow leaves and large clusters of fragrant, violet flowers from midsummer to autumn (fall).

Cultivation

When grown as an ornamental, this plant requires some protection from winter frosts. This species[4] and the cultivars ‘Purple Eye’[5] and ‘Silver Lace’, with cream-margined leaves,[6] have all gained the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.

Medicinal uses

Tulbaghia violacea is used locally as a herbal remedy/medicine to treat several ailments. Recently it was demonstrated to have androgenic and anti-cancer properties in vitro.

Tulbaghia violacea exhibited antithrombotic activities which were higher than those found in garlic.

Odor

It may smell like marijuana or skunk to those familiar with either smell. There have been instances in which concerned neighbors have contacted the authorities about the smell of cannabis in the neighborhood only to find out that the culprit was actually lemon verbena or society garlic.
