Polianthes tuberosa Duo Collection

Tuberose

Polianthes was a popular plant in Victorian times and now it has been re-discovered, this tuberose is well and truly back in vogue. Polianthes 'Duo Collection' has spires of fragrant, waxy blooms, which create a gorgeous scent on a summer evening. Best planted in containers for the most successful results and then moved indoors for the winter. They also make excellent flowers for cutting. Treat yourself to the Victorian favourite 'The Pearl' and the new, modern 'Pink Sapphire'. Height: 120cm (48"). Spread: 15cm (6"). Supplied as tubers. More info

Polianthes tuberosa 'Pink Sapphire'

Tuberose

The Tuberose has long been admired for its exquisite, rich perfume. Until recently, only white cultivars were available, but Polianthes tuberosa 'Pink Sapphire' marks a real breeding breakthrough. Rose pink blooms with fully double petals are carried in stocky flower spikes that make astonishing cut flowers. This half hardy tuberous perennial is perfect for growing in containers on a sunny patio, where its fragrance can be enjoyed on warm summer evenings. Polianthes tuberosa requires a minimum temperature of 15°C (59°F), so be sure to move them indoors over winter for another beguiling display next year. Height: 120cm (48"). Spread: 15cm (6").

Curcuma Collection

Curcuma alismatifolia, Siam Tulip, Ornamental Turmeric

  • Rare summer flowering bulb
  • Be one of the first to grow these exotic Thai flowers in the UK
  • Perfect summer patio pot plant and winter houseplant.

Add a touch of Thailand to your summer patio or conservatory! You may have seen these exotic flowers in luxury tropical bouquets, but it's unlikely you've seen them growing in a garden setting here in the UK. We've managed to secure a limited stock of these unusual summer flowering bulbs, so you can be one of the first UK gardeners to add them to your displays for real wow factor on the patio this summer. Despite their exotic looks, curcuma tubers are no more difficult to grow than frost tender begonias and dahlias. Start them into growth in early spring on a warm windowsill or in the greenhouse for months of summer colour on the patio from their alien-like, waxy flowerheads. Each flower spike is a work of art and is perfectly shown off above the ornamental pleated foliage. All varieties in our mix are winter temperature hardy, but we’ve given them a half-hardy rating because they won't cope outside during a wet winter. If you can keep them dry, then by all means leave them outside during the colder months to go into a dormant phase, but we think you'll get more from these luxurious Siam tulips if you bring them in before the first autumn frost and let them bloom through winter on a warm windowsill. Curcuma ‘Anna Pink’ will add a flash of hot pink to your displays. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread 30cm (12").

Polianthes tuberosa 'The Pearl'

Tuberose

  • The world's most fragrant bulb
Spikes of intensely fragrant, waxy white flowers are produced throughout summer, which make enthralling cut flowers. The semi-double, fragrant tuberose flowers of this relatively unknown bulb are carried above narrow, lance shapes leaves. Polianthes tuberosa requires a minimum temperature of 15C (59F) so it is ideal for a heated greenhouse or conservatory. It can also be grown outdoors in containers or sheltered sunny borders, if it is lifted and stored frost-free over winter. Bulb size: 14/16. Height: 120cm (48"). Spread: 20cm (8").
