Tulbagia ‘Milky Way’ was purpose bred in Victoria, Australia to impressively meet a wide range of trying climatic conditions. This very hardy, clumping Tulbaghia has fine grass-like foliage and is ornamental year round. ‘Milky Way’ is long flowering - from spring all the way through to late autumn so the beautiful soft pink flowers can be enjoyed nearly year round.

'Milky Way' is very easy to grow, and extremely low maintenance. It’s so tough, you can simply run over the plant with a lawnmower or whipper snipper, and in just a few months it’ll be back in full leaf and flower! The plant provides a solution for every corner of the garden from mass planting, edging through to a mixed garden bed. It can be used in a wide range of situations from large scale water efficient landscapes through to containers in a small courtyard in full sun.

Plant in full sun through to part shade in soils that are well draining, and feed with a general purpose slow release fertiliser at the beginning of spring. Water requirements are very low once the plant is established, simply provide an occasional deep watering during periods of extended heat for optimum results. Pruning is generally not required, however if you wish to rejuvenate an older clump, simply prune back to ground level and new growth with appear in 6-8 weeks.
