Tulbaghia comminsii is really a dainty little species with a height that does not exceed 15 cm. The foliage is distinct, glaucous and filiform, almost wispy. The white flowers are suffused with pale peach-pink along the central vein of the segments with a creamy-white scale like corona that makes them very attractive. The flowering season is also very long and they are hardly ever without flowers. The flowers are very aromatic with a sweet carnation/clove fragrance. This dainty little Tulbaghia is one of the few species in the genus where the flowers are aromatic.
In habitat it can be found growing between rocks in dolerite outcrops. It is a dry and harsh environment.
Due to its small size, it is best to plant it in a pot. It needs a very well-drained soil and a sunny position.
