Polianthes tuberosa 'Tuberrose' Pack of 10 Bulbs

Commonly known as Tuberoses, these amazingly sweet-scented beauties will enchant in summer as their beautiful fragrance wafts gently on warm evening breezes. You'll soon see (smell!) why it is used so much as a base fragrance in leading perfumes. Tuberoses make a beautiful cut flower to scent a room with, or enjoy in pots on the patio by seating and entertaining areas. Plant the bulbs indoors in spring to get a head start and bring outside from May, growing in a warm, sunny spot. They flower in august and september, producing pretty creamy white double flowers, with an intoxicating fragrance, on stems about 60-80cm tall. Top tip for success is once flowered, remove this section of the bulbs, as it never flowers again, but leaving new side shoots to flower next year. Bring pots inside each winter for frost-free area, and dry back. Enjoy the allure of your own Tuberose fragrances wafting on evening breeze in your garden.
