Vigorous grower with a nice "just right" garlic flavor. 18-20"H plants produce slightly wider, flatter and more refined leaves than other varieties. Pretty white flower stalks emerge late in the season making this an edible that can serve a dual purpose as an ornamental. Excellent culinary herb for use in stir-fries, soups, compound butters and garnishes. Bees and butterflies love the blooms!
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
Perennial plants live for more than two years. They return year after year and continue growing until they reach maturity, which varies by plant but averages three to five years.
