Product Description

This beautiful variegated form of Tulbaghia will appeal to many gardeners. The narrow, strap-like leaves are a lovely blue-grey colour striped with cream down their whole length. This attractive foliage forms a silvery mound to around 30cm in height.

During spring and summer slender stems rising to around 60cm bear loose umbels of dainty lilac-pink flowers which resemble miniature agapanthus flowers. In milder climates spot flowering will continue on through winter.

Native to South Africa this hardy plant is drought tolerant with the ability to recede into its perennial bulbs during times of prolonged dryness re-emerging when conditions become more favourable.

'Silver Lace' emits a garlic odour which serves as a useful pest repellent beneath roses or as a companion plant in vegetable or herb gardens.

  • Variegated foliage
  • Low maintenance
  • Grows in most areas and soil types
  • Extremely hardy
  • Ideal for borders
