Why grow Tulbaghia Violacea Variegated in your Garden?

19 August 2016

Tulbaghia violacea’s purple colour makes for a stunning addition to the garden that offers a number of health and wellness benefits too.

The Tulbaghia violacea variegated has been known for its medicinal benefits for generations.  The flowers and leaves can be eaten with meat and potatoes, in much the same way as spinach. They can also be used in salads, adding a peppery, garlic-like flavour.

When planted around the house, Tulbaghia violacea variegated keeps snakes, mosquitoes, ticks and fleas away. In the garden, they attract bees, butterflies and moths.
