Tulbaghia 'Flamingo PP32,405 (Flamingo Society Garlic) - A clumping evergreen perennial with tuberous roots from which emerge flexible grass-like 1 foot long by 1/4 inch wide upright chartreuse green leaves that are a brilliant violet pink near their bases and spotted the same color at the leaf tips. We have yet to see this very new variety bloom but presume it will have the same violet-pink flowers of the typical society garlic, Tulbaghia violacea. Plant in coastal full sun to light shade with occasional to regular irrigation - as with Tulbaghia violacea this plant should prove somewhat drought tolerant but will always looks better with more regular irrigation. Should prove hardy and evergreen to at least 25F and root hardy to colder temperatures. This cultivar looks best up close and where its leaf bases are displayed, so use it where this attributes is well displayed in a raised bed or in in a container at eye level. The genus was named to honor Ryk Tulbagh (1699-1771) the early governor of the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. The cultivar 'Flamingo' is a selection made by Ivan van der Walt of Pretoria, South Africa, who is the man responsible for the great hybrid 'Ashanti', which we think is one of the best of the Society Garlics in cultivation for its gray narrow foliage and large bright flowers. This plant received US Plant Patent PP32,405 in October 2020 and was introduced in the US in 2019 by Star Roses and Plants (Ball Horticulture). We also grow several Tulbaghia violacea cultivars including Tulbaghia violacea 'Edinburgh', Tulbaghia violacea 'Blanca', Tulbaghia violacea Purpleicious ['Hinetul1'], Tulbaghia violacea 'Oro Verde', Tulbaghia violacea 'Emerisa White', Tulbaghia violacea 'Savannah Lightning' as well as Tulbaghia simmleri (AKA T. fragrans), Tulbaghia simmleri 'Alba' and the hybrids Tulbaghia 'Ashanti', Tulbaghia 'Cosmic' and Tulbaghia 'Himba'The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of this plant in our nursery crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we visit. We also will incorporate comments that we receive from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Tulbaghia 'Flamingo' PP32,405.
