Tulbaghia acutiloba

A lesser known cousin to society garlic that may not wow you from afar but get to know it and you may be surprised. This perennial South African bulb sports narrow blade like foliage and interesting flowers almost like a miniature daffodil with small strap-like green outer petals surrounding a pumpkin orange central corolla with a texture not unlike a rubber eraser. Sweetly fragrant in the evenings, drought tolerant, and deer resistant, what's not to like?
