Variegated Society Garlic - Winter Hardy?
Sat, 06 Apr 2013 17:32:20 PDT
Last year I planted in my back yard a one-gallon pot of Variegated Society  
Garlic, Tulbaghia violacea 'Variegata.'
Today I had a big survived the winter and is growing.  I  
didn't expect it to survive; it wasn't even an experiment.  
My back yard is a postage stamp, bordered by a 6' high solid wood fence,  
and the plant is by a flagstone patio.  Even with that, I can't justify my  
back yard being two or more zones warmer, else I'd be growing palms.
Does this surprise anyone else?  What really is the winter hardiness  zone 
for this plant?
