Society Garlic Plants For Beautiful Addition In Your Yard
Society garlic flowers appear atop 1 foot tall, grass-like stems from early summer to autumn, making these plants become desirable addition to sunny flower beds. Blooming sporadically from early summer to fall, the flowers resemble spring blossoms. These flower plants grow in clusters of eight to 20 and are a little less than 1 inch (2.5 cm) long. Each flower has six petals, resembling a six-pointed star. When young, the plant’s flowers can be pink-white rather than the standard purple. At any age, society garlic flowers are quite tough, usually capable of remaining intact even during frequent and heavy rainstorms. To planting these plants, start new plants from seed in spring. Wait until all danger of frost has passed and the soil is warm. The seeds germinate and reach flowering size quickly.
Thin the plants to about 18 inches apart when they are about 3 inches tall. Another way to obtain new plants is to divide the plants in spring. To maintenance, water the plants slowly and deeply to saturate the root zone in the absence of rain in spring and summer. Allow the soil to become almost completely dry in winter. The plants need a layer of compost or the addition of a general-purpose fertilizer once a year in early spring.
