The Q&A Archives: Pistacia And Tulbaghia ?

Question: Can the Pistacia chinensis grow in shade? Also, can Tulbaghia violacea grow in Brooks, CA which I believe is zone 9?

Thank you!

Answer: I'm afraid the Chinese Pistache will only grow well if planted in full sunshine. Tulbaghia (Society Garlic) is a member of the Amaryllis family and is native to south Africa. It will be damaged in temperatures of about 25F. If you have a sunny site in your garden that remains frost-free, you can successfully grow Society Garlic.

Best wishes with your garden!
