What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Garden Tour: Enchanting Greek Landscape
African lilies and Society Garlic in a spectrum of blues, pinks, and whites blanket the landscape and blow with the breeze.
Becky Harris added this to Higher Ground: 6 Spectacular Landscapes
Purple, blue, pink and white flowers, including the tall African lily and pink society garlic are spread between the house and the ocean edge of the property.
Experiment With Color CombinationsWhile mixing greens or reds can be tricky, combining different purples is usually an easy task. Though purples don't generally clash, when in doubt, go with shades that are similar in tone or hue but vary in intensity (think of the varying shades on a color sample from the paint store).Matching a purple that has a pink undertone, such as society garlic (Tulbachia violacea), with a purple that has a blue undertone, such as African lily (Agapanthus africanus) results in mix that highlights both colors. White varieties of African lilies scattered throughout a planting bed also help bridge the gap between the two shades of purple.

Layering can take on an abundant, natural look that is perfect for casual gardens and meadows. Here, agapanthus and society garlic put on a multilayered show.See more of this landscape design in Greece
Society Garlic(Tuhlbaghia violacea)Edible garlic-flavored purple flowers on a drought-tolerant and grassy ground cover — what other reasons do you need to replace your lawn with society garlic? Suffering colonies of this plant can be found in parking medians and hell strips wherever it's hardy, but it responds very well to regular watering and an occasional boost of fertilizer, and it can fill in to form a weed-suppressing ground cover in just a couple of years. The big blue and white flowers looming overhead in the photo here are those of the oft-planted lily of the Nile (Agapanthus africanus, zones 7 to 11). It makes a great companion for society garlic, since both plants bloom at the same time, are from South Africa and thrive in more or less the same conditions. Add a yellow bulbine (Bulbine frutescens, zones 9 to 11) to the mix for an even more impressive display.Where it will grow: Hardy to 20 degrees Fahrenheit (zones 9 to 11) but resprouts in zone 7Water requirement: Low; well-drained soilLight requirement: Partial to full sunMature size: 1 foot to 2 feet tall and wideSeasonal interest: Purple flowers in spring and summer, occasionally in fall and winterWhen to plant: Spring to fall
