Wall Flower 300

This lonely, lovely society garlic flower was found growing up a stucco wall in a courtyard garden in the lovely coastal city of Charleston, South Carolina. Its soft violet color and simplicity immediately attracted me to take this image.
Society garlic is an attractive ornamental plant from South Africa whose leaves have a garlicky odor. It's often used as a foundation plant or along walkways. Along with onions and garlic, Society garlic is a member of the lily family, but it is a different genus, Tulbaghia, entirely restricted to Africa, and includes about 24 species. The species name violacea refers to the flower color, variously described as lilac, lilac-blue, pink, purplish-violet or violet. The common name, society garlic, probably refers to the plant’s clump-forming habit and garlic-smelling leaves.
I am an exhibiting artist in southwest Florida and my art has been exhibited in galleries in Florida, Georgia and North Carolina and is in collections nationwide. I create abstract photography, mixed media photo painting, acrylic mixed media, and acrylic paintings. Many would make great decorative throw pillows or shower curtains. I've even had a couple abstracts made into my personal cell phone covers. Please check out my Facebook page Doodleng Art by Sharon Eng for announcements and more information about my art. This image would be a good selection for business or corporate wall art and decor or in any home.
