Cooling down in the refreshing shade of your patio could be quite a bit sweeter with the addition of Ashanti Society Garlic (Tulbaghia x 'Ashanti' PP27,404)! Perfect for borders or accents, this flower's clustered form and pretty flowers will charm your socks off!
As the days grow warmer during the spring, Ashanti sprouts grass-like stems from slender light green leaves. Just as spring is winding into the warm sunny days of summer, the stems blossom with dainty lavender-colored blooms!
These flowers grace the top of stems that can reach a foot above the rest of the plant, giving it a unique texture. For a slightly more herbaceous feel, crush a stem or two to release a slight garlic aroma that'll have you craving a crispy slice of garlic bread. Yum!

Don't have an herb garden? There's no better way to start one than by adding an Ashanti Society Garlic as a border specimen! They're thought to deter moles from your other edible herbs and vegetables with its scent.
Herb gardens aren't the only way to use these plants as a border specimen. Line your walkway with them or your backyard garden, they'll draw attention without covering the flowers behind them!
Ashanti Society Garlic's scent will also deter deer, so they make wonderful companion plants in your garden or in containers. These make fantastic "Filler" in mixed plantings. They also make a high-impact standalone anchor plant in matching large containers placed prominently along the length of the bed.
Growing Society Garlic is often easy as they require minimal maintenance. You'll be happy to know, Ashanti is no exception! These plants are happiest and bloom the best when placed somewhere they can bask in the sunlight all day long. The more sun the better.
Space out the individual cloves so each plant can develop in a 3-4 inch area. Put the root side down and pointed side up into the loosened soil and cover with an inch or two of soil and water in well.
Light, sandy soil is best but any soil that is well-draining will work just fine. Ashanti isn't too picky! Regular watering will go a long way as well.
Each clove will develop roots and grow all fall and into winter right up until the soil freezes just like your tulip bulbs will. Then in the spring, your garlic plants will start growing early and strong which will make nice large bulbs of garlic that can be harvested in July or so depending upon where you are located.
Pruning is easy too! Simply cut back the old foliage before any newer leaves start growing early in the spring. If you're looking for a "plant it and leave it" addition to your garden, Ashanti is for you!
