The tuberose is so popular its fragrance is used in some of our most expensive high-end perfumes.

Cultural Notes

  • Soil - Well-drained
  • Position - Full Sun, sheltered
  • Cutting -
  • Flowering - Summer
  • Additional Information - Start off under glass if possible during cooler months. Water moderately during the growing season and feed with a liquid fertiliser every couple of weeks throughout active growth as this will encourage profuse blooming. After the flowering period, bulbs should be dug up or transplanted and stored over the winter period. This will protect them from frost damage.
