Plant of the Week: Society Garlic

Society Garlic is a great plant to use as a ground cover when mass planted or as accent plants to provide a little different color and texture in your garden.

Society Garlic, as you might expect from the name, does smell “garlicky” however it is a great plant to help deter “critters” such as deer and rabbits from chewing on your plants. Plant Society Garlic around plants that tend to get chewed and it may deter them.

Society Garlic grows into a nice rounded shape clump that is about 12”-18” high and about the same wide. The pretty purple flowers are suspended above a green foliage that is almost “succulent” in texture. It is cold hardy and heat tolerant as well as having good salt tolerance. For those who have deer in their neighborhood, it is a great choice.
