Tulbaghia : Greenhouse Plants
C – cool, minimum of 7°C (45°F)
Tidbaghia violaceae from South Africa is an unusual rhizomatous plant that you will have to search hard to find a source of. The variegated form is the one to look for which will produce an attractive foliage clump about 30 cm (1 ft) high which is graced by small violet-mauve flowers in March held just above the foliage. A well-drainedand careful watering in winter will ensure success. Propagation is simply by division, best done after flowering. I have seen seed of T. fragrans (T. pulchella) for sale. From the Transvaal it bears sweetly scented mauve bell-shaped flowers.
