Description for Rajnigandha, Polianthes tuberosa

Polianthes tuberosa, the tuberose, is a perennial plant related to the agaves, extracts of which are used as a note in perfumery. The common name derives from the Latin tuberosa, meaning swollen or tuberous in reference to its root system

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Bone flower White Late summer 2 to 3 feet Easy to grow

Planting and care

Keep the soil consistently moist before and during the period of bloom that occurs in late summer. Enrich poor soil with compost and organic amendments to increase drainage and texture for the best show of tuberose flowers. Best results of blooms come from the cultivar Mexican Single, which is highly fragrant

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full Sun Well-drained soil Medium 70 to 75 degrees C (21 to 24 degrees C.) Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Rajnigandha

  • When blooms are spent and foliage is yellowed, bulbs must be dug up and stored for winter protection in northern areas. Tuberose plant info varies as to which gardening zones can leave the bulbs in the ground over the winter. All recommend spring planting, but autumn digging and storage is said by some to be necessary in all but zones 9 and 10.
