Description
Polianthes tuberosa was a popular choice in Victorian times as a cut flower, but sadly it is rarely seen nowadays. Polianthes tuberosa ‘Yellow Baby' is grown for its waxy, star-shaped blooms that crowd its upright stems in summer. The creamy yellow flowers are deeply fragrant, producing an enchanting, sweet perfume. This unusual tender bulb is best grown in a warm greenhouse or conservatory, with a minimum temperature of 15°C (59°F). It can be moved outdoors during the summer months and plunged into borders, or enjoyed as a patio plant, once all risk of frost has passed. Height: 90cm (36").

Culinary note: The flowers can be eaten cooked and are often added to soups or used to flavour soy sauces in oriental cuisine. For more details about edible flowers click here.

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.
