Tuberose – Tin Candle
Collection: Oxford Botanic Garden
Tuberose is a night-flowering plant, believed to be native to Mexico. The plant produces clusters of highly fragrant, funnel-shaped, white flowers which produce a strong, sweet and heady aroma. Tuberose is widely grown in warmer climates and harvested as a cut flower. White varieties were a popular addition to flower arrangements in the Victorian era. The flowers of tuberose have also long been used in religious ceremonies, for example to make wreaths and garlands for weddings.
