Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. In 2012 we opened for the NGS. https://www.ngs.org.uk/find-a-garden/garden/26064/

I love these bulbous plants, a relative of the amaryllis. They need some winter protection so mine are currently tucked up in the greenhouse. #tulbaghia #societygarlic #mauveflowers #holidayfind #notmygarden

I have the variegated one, Jane. The flowers are paler than this one but the green and silver foliage is really pretty. I think I posted a photo of it earlier in the year. @pelly 😘

I’m sure I’ve seen it Barbara, I think it may have been on one of Jason’s @Jasonsparkes1 posts 👍😍

Surely such an exotic looking flower shouldn't look this good on a wet and miserable afternoon in mid-September? #tulbaghia #mauveflowers #mygardentoday

It's a native of South Africa, @gjones and the common name is thought to refer to the fact that it grows in clumps and smells of garlic. Not very scientific but then common names rarely are!
