Tuberose

Tuberose

Did you know?

Tuberoses are a night flowering native of Mexico.  They have an extraordinary scent, extracts of which are used in perfume. In the language of flowers tuberrose means illicit pleasure. They have 30-70cm stems with spikes of trumpet shaped cream coloured flowers.

Selection and Storage

Choose bunches with a few flowers that are fully open and a strong scent. Avoid bunches with wilting or brown flowers. Remove leaves from the bottom of the stem. Cut a minimum of 2cm off the bottom of the stem, place in warm water with a preservative to help open the flowers and keep the scent. Replace water daily. Keep away from fruit and smoke.

Availability

December-February and some glasshouse grown flowers available August-September.
