A Top 10 Perennial!

When asked at the 2011 Gardenpalooza (April) to select one of her favorite plants, Pat Thompson, owner of Secret Garden Growers, chose Tulbaghia violacea ‘Silver Lace’. The specialty retail nursery is known for its rare and unusual plants that do well in the Northwest. I couldn’t resist and now have one planted in a container near my front door. The blossoms look as fresh today as they did when they started blooming a few weeks ago (see photo) and the leaves still look great, too.
