Description

This beautiful flower will certainly be one of the pearls of your summer garden. Polianthes 'The Pearl' (creamy white double tuberose) has an exquisite spike carrying multiple creamy double flowers which extends high above its rather grassy-looking foliage. To add to the beauty of these blooms, they are also fragrant, and make long-lasting cut flowers. This makes these delicate blooms which will adorn your garden in mid to late summer. As an added bonus, 'The Pearl' will also give a good show on your patio if planted in an attractive pot. They’re easy to grow but do like their place in the sun!
