Tulbaghia leucantha is about the only wild garlic that prefers a damp spot. They are quite common along seepage zones in the Drakensberg.
The Highland wild garlic is a perennial herb growing from small corms that arise from a rhizome. It is a vey variable specie. Leaves are normally linear. Several green and white flowers occur on every inflorescence with conspicuous fleshy light red inner coronas. The plant smells of garlic, as do several of the other species of the genus. This species is very similar to Tulbaghia alliacea.
Tulbaghia leucantha looks well if interplanted with small sedges in a wetland area. It is very easy to maintain and has a long flowering season.
