Polianthes tuberosa, or tuberose, is a stunning perennial that produces clusters of fragrant, white flowers on tall stems. This exquisite plant originates from Mexico and has been prized for centuries for its heavenly perfume and elegant beauty. Tuberose thrives in sunny and well-drained positions and needs protection from frost in colder areas. Tuberose bulbs can be planted in spring and lifted in autumn for storage, or left in the ground in milder regions.
