Description
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").

How to Grow
Plant tubers in pots during spring, at a depth of 10cm. Grow them on in a warm, frost free position. When plants are well grown, and all risk of frost has past, transplant Polianthes into their final positions in borders or containers. Choose a sunny position in moist, free draining soil. Tubers may also be planted directly into borders.
More Info
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. With the first autumn frosts, remove tubers from their positions and store over winter in peat or sand, in a cool but frost free position. Replant tubers of Polianthes tuberosa the following spring.
