My two garlic vines have been growing for several years in the strong Miami,Florida sun. One has never bloomed, the other one has grown taller and blooms twice a year in Dec and Jan. The blooms last only two weeks. Aye, there's the rub, it doesnt bloom enough for my taste, otherwise it's a joy. It's not invasive. It is not destructive of fences or trellises, it's a gentle vine.
Home Depot recommended acid fertilizer.

Pretty trumpet shaped flowers that start out bright medium purple, and fade to pale lavender as they age, giving the overall look of the vine a tricolor look when loaded with lots of blooms.
The foliage when rubbed or brushed against, gives off the fragrance of garlic, hense the name.
The blooms have some fragrance, but it is very mild.
This is not commonly found in commerce yet, and is on the tender side...it loves the heat. Mine sits and pouts until mid-summer when it is the hottest.
The blooms can last almost a week...
They root from stiff green cuttings and require heat to root. Same with the seeds. The seeds do not need a cold spell, and should be surface sown with heat.
