Also known as the Mouse Garlic, angulosum has a half-sphere head of lilac which is usually no bigger than 5 to 6 cm. It will grow in well in damp heavy and does not mind a bit of shade. It is best to plant the bulbs about 22cm apart to along for spread as angulosum does increase rapidly. Plant in little clumps about 6 to 8cm deep for best results.
