Follow your nose at the florist shop or farmer’s market; with luck you’re inhaling tuberose. This ingredient in famous perfumes is classically blended with orange blossom, gardenia and lily of the valley. Alone? Rich and voluptuous. Tuberose florets open in the evening, releasing their complex scent. Start with these oversized bulb clumps that look giant heads of garlic; bypass the single bulbs found elsewhere. Plant when the soil warms (or start indoors in areas with shorter growing seasons) and start planning your September patio parties. (Note, there are no colored tuberose here because we've found them to be weak performers. Who needs that?)
