SOCIETY GARLIC

Sun to part shade. A nearly evergreen perennial, with lavender flowers spring to fall. You can’t miss the garlic odor, but the name is a reference to the fact that this garlic can be eaten “in society” — i.e., without bad breath or stinky fingers. Keep in mind, society garlic isn’t preferred by deer, but they may eat it anyway. It prefers a bit of shade — for full sun, you may have better luck with bulbine.
