I agree, Rhoda.  Tulbahgia simmleri is an absolutely oustanding subject,
with a long season of bloom and fragrance to boot.  And no foliar garlic
odor!  The flowers range from white to pink and lavender shades.  I will be
sending seed to the IBS BX soon.

> Tulbaghia acutiloba will always be on my 'must have' list. My first
encounter with it was late one afternoon when I couldn't figure out which
one of my plants was emitting such a beautiful strong scent, almost like
cinnamon.  What a surprise when it turned out to be the insignificant flower
of an onion family!  It has a scent only after about 4 pm for a couple of
hours.  Another good one is Tulbaghia simmleri (used to be T. fragrans).
