Polianthes - Tuberose

List of files and visuals associated with this text.


Tuberose is not fully hardy and is started early inside then planted into the garden when the danger or frost is past. They like a sunny exposure and light well drained soil. The fragrant flowers can be cut but the water must be changed every day. The plants grow two to three feet high and different bulbs bloom at different times.

The tubers are planted nine inches apart with the top of the tuber exposed. Tubers are dug and stored in sand or peat at a temperature of 60 degrees. Remove offsets at planting time but these take more than a year to bloom.
