You may remember that a while ago I posted about the tuberoses I planted beginning to flower and how I was surprised that a pot which I thought I had planted with the double variety 'The Pearl' produced single flowers. Well, it appears that I simply mixed up the pots, because another one has now produced beautiful double flowers.
Double tuberose (Polianthes tuberosa 'The Pearl')
Pots of tuberoses in a sheltered corner in the garden, with lots more flowers coming
There are several more - and, by the looks of it, bigger - flower spikes coming up from all the pots of tuberoses that have been sitting in a sunny, sheltered corner of the garden, but even another pot up on the balcony, with less direct sun, more wind, and no heat-retaining walls, is beginning to send up flower spikes. Hopefully this should mean that I get to enjoy those lovely flowers and that decadently luscious evening fragrance for quite a while longer. There really is nothing quite like it.
