polianthes tuberosa


polianthes tuberosa  (Polianthes tuberosa)

Very surprised to see this in flower as they are in my front porch and the temperature has been down to +3C and they normally are not to keen on that sort of temp..

its very pretty, does it grow from a bulb or seed?

4 Dec, 2011

 

thanks Meanie, from bulb Sticki but the better one is the double version called P."the pearl" :-)

its not unlike my paperwhite narcissus but this looks a little classier, my paperwhites are all falling over they shot up so tall.

Very nice Sl, I have one in bud in the garden but I dont think it's going to open. :(

my paperwhites have shot up to sticki, just looked over at them and one has a flower opening on it, put that on tomorrow..
That's a shame Ph could you move it inside till it's finished flowering..

I must admit, I prefer the single form!

i'm not a big fan of doubles myself i only have one and that is a pink hollyhock for my daughter, but i've heard the pearl is more fragrant.

I found the single quite heady enough!
