Tuberose ‘Cinderella’ (Polianthes tuberosa ‘Cinderella’) has pretty, lavender-pink flowers with long bright green leaves at its base. ‘Cinderella’s’ sweet fragrance and unique color make this a lovely garden addition. Plant in fertile, compost-enriched well-drained soil in a sunny to light shade location in the spring once danger of frost has passed. Planted in the spring, they will usually flower in late summer. With a head start indoors, or if they overwinter, they may start flowering by early summer. Hardy in zones 8-10, Tuberose flowers best when the bulbs are lifted in the fall even where hardy, and stored to be re-planted in the spring. After flowers are spent and foliage is yellowed, simply dig the bulbs and dry them for 7-10 days. Store in a cool (50°F) location and re-plant after the danger of frost has passed in the spring. For earlier flowers in northern areas, start your Tuberose indoors for an early start to sweet fragrance and lovely flowers. Tuberose ‘Cinderella’ are superb cut flowers, with long lasting fragrance that will make your bouquets the envy of the neighborhood. Excellent as a container plant too. Ideal for moon gardens, as Tuberose is especially fragrant at night. 18-24" tall.
