Tuberoses (Polianthes) The Pearl

Tuberoses (Polianthes) The Pearl

Ideal for Floral Arrangements

A favorite for floral arrangements, the Pearl Tuberose (Polianthes) will sweeten the air and add pretty pink and white tones. The fragrance of tuberose has long been used in perfumes to provide soft middle notes that linger. This seductive aroma has made tuberose one of the most sought-after blooms for fragrant cutting gardens and as a border plant. Though native to Mexico, tuberose performs very well in sunny northern landscapes. Lovely spikes of soft flowers appear in early summer and retain their beauty and sweet perfume all season long. Lift in fall in zones 3-7. Bulb size: 10-12 cm.
  • Hardiness Zones 3-10
