Grown primarily for their equisite highly fragrant pure white flowers, these bulbous plants are much tougher than they look. They can be grown in most parts of Australia as they tolerate cool climate but also grow successfully in sub tropical areas.
The plants themselves grow to about 45cm high, and with flowers they can be up to about 70cm high. They are not wide plants, so can be planted close together, although if you are patient you may want to plant further apart and wait for them to divide as each bulb will produce a further one or two bulbs each year.
In cool climates they should be planted in full sun, whereas in hotter areas they may benefit from a position that offers protection from the sun in the hottest part of the day. Because of their height, they are best protected from strong wind.
The plants we supply are in packs of 10 fresh bulbs with foliage trimmed back. You will actually receive 10 clumps of bulbs, as these tend to grow in clumps of small bulbs as opposed to one larger one.
Growing Tip: If your tuberoses are reluctant to flower then divide them and replant them. The central bulb flowers only once and then produces new offset bulbs that will flower when they are large enough. If you give them space to grow away from their parent bulb they will more quickly bloom for you.
