Ooh, that's really lovely, and it looks as if it has a heady scent! Is this an old garden plant......how would you grow it?

Thanks all. Janey, I planted 6 tuberose bulbs November 2006; the ground squirrels helped themselves to 4 of them before they bloomed. The two that are left keep coming back better and better. I attribute my success with bulbs and tubers to the fact that I don't have to dig them up every year. Other than that they get watered and fed occasionally.

I have some of these and they do smell wonderful, more so in the evenings. Mine have a greenish hue before they open up. The ones that I have multiplied like crazy, but only two bloomed. I like the way you took this photo, nice view :)

This variety is beautiful ! I have the single bloom version and it's not all that attractive, but still has a wonderful fragrance. Yours is certainly a winner !
