I have one of these and I just love it. Since it's not hardy to my zone I keep it in a container and overwinter it in my garage where the temperature gets to around 40 degrees in the coldest part of the winter. With occassional watering and a sunny window, it does very well in there. A nice ornamental plant with interesting foliage and pretty blooms. Can't say I've ever eaten any part of it, but maybe this summer!

Try the blossoms in salads--or as embellishment for deviled eggs. I sometimes chip some of the foliage up really fine and toss it into a salad.

This was an interesting article re the society garlic. I have had some growing in 2 of my gardens now for many years and they've done great here and have multiplied and I dig them up when they become too dense and plant them elsewhere. I find that they do bloom best in full sun as I have some in full sun and partial sun/partial shade areas. They just keep coming back year after year after dying back in some of our colder kind of plant.
