NAME Tulbaghia ‘Faye’ registered with KAVB 6/11/09
Held above relatively fine glaucous green foliage which is suffused purple-brown at the base, the small umbel measuring approximately 3.5 cm across is composed of 8-10 small cup-shaped glistening white flowers with bright pale-pink scales. The umbels are further enhanced with bright purple lanceolate spathe valves. Short in growth, flowering at 20 - 25 cm from May - September/October it is also delicately night scented. This is neat, petite and cute. The name Faye is derived from Middle English faie meaning "fairy"
