Tuberoses are perfumed, pretty, easy going plants for a hot garden spot.

Tuberose flowers have a strong and alluring fragrance, similar to that of Jasmine. They are also excellent for picking, so you can bring the fragrance indoors. The impressive flower stems stretch 60-80cm tall.

The bright green leaves of Tuberose are clustered at the base of the plant with smaller leaves forming along the stem.

Plant into a well drained soil in a full sun location. In cool climates they need to be protected from the cold, grow in a garden hot spot, they require a long season to flower at their best. They can also be grown in pots. It is a good idea to protect them from strong winds.

Tuberoses make good companions for Agapanthus and Crocosmias.
