Description
Polianthes tuberosa 'Sensation' - single form; soft pink flowers; fragrant; 18"-36"; whz 8-10; these bulbs are the largest available this season, and they are blooming size.

Lots of tubular, super fragrant, white blossoms with incredibly thick, waxy substance bloom on top of 18"-24" stems with foliage that is 1' tall. If the bulbs are planted in the spring, they bloom in late summer. However, when they overwinter, which they sometimes do here, they bloom in early summer and seem to last forever.  Bulbs can be started indoors for early bloom, and shoud be if you live in a climate with a short summer season (see our heat mat).  Victorian favorite; used pre-1600; 14-18 cm bulbs; 3 to 5 per sq. ft.; winter hardiness zones 8-10; has overwintered in our zone 7 garden with winter mulch and good drainage. (This was one of our grandmother's favorites - one flower makes the house smell wonderful!)
