Tulbaghia Simmleri Alba
Extremely fragrant ivory-white flowers open in clusters on upright stems, giving the best of their scent in the evening and at night. This rarely-offered, very ornamental, and distant relative of onions, prefers full sun, and will thrive on rich well drained soil, preferring moisture in the summer months and protection from the soaking wet in winter. The bulbs soon clump up into strong masses of grassy foliage, and do best in a well-drained place protected from frost. It will also make a lovely sweetly-perfumed display in a container indoors.
Sow seeds at any time covering them very thinly with compost or grit, and leaving some of the seed showing, as light can initiate germination, just as in the wild, and leave in a well-lit, warm spot. Sometimes, artificial heat may not be needed, and may prevent germination, as some species will only germinate in the spring after being chilled in the moist seed tray. Grow on in sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground.
