I think there's a garlic society out in Gilroy, Calif. World famous suppliers to retail and their annual festival. (I don't know about this year though, with the fires out there. I haven't followed up with the reports)
Try googling to find info from them. They would probably be your best overall source.
But for more about the best for your area, specificly, I would check your nurseries and suppliers. They'll know what species will do best in your area.

I wish I could bribe you to send me a braid next year!
Ha!

Here is the Utah Extension pamphlet on garlic:

More than you need to know about home garlic production in your state!!

I do plant grocery store garlic, and have had good results.

No need to wait until next year, garlic is planted in the fall. Find some local garlic, or store bought is okay, and plant it in October or November.
