Polianthes Tuberosa L

  Polianthes /ËŒpÉ’liˈænθiːz/[1] is a formerly recognized genus of plants in family Asparagaceae, subfamily Agavoideae.[2] molecular phylogenetic studies showed that Polianthes is embedded within the larger genus Agave, which has been expanded to include it.[2][3] One of its former members is the tuberose, Agave amica, formerly Polianthes tuberosa, a plant that is commonly used in perfume making. Agave amica, formerly Polianthes tuberosa, the tuberose, is a perennial plant in the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Agavoideae, extracts of which are used as a note in perfumery. Now widely grown as an ornamental plant, the species was originally native to Mexico. All the species formerly placed in Polianthes are endemic to Mexico, although Agave amica has become naturalized in other places. Some species now included in Agave are listed below with synonyms from the World Checklist of Selected Plant Families. Polianthes tuberosa is a BULB growing to 1 m (3ft 3in) by 0.2 m (0ft 8in). It is hardy to zone (UK) 9 and is frost tender. The species is hermaphrodite (has both male and female organs). Suitable for: light (sandy) and medium (loamy) soils and prefers well-drained soil. Suitable pH: acid, neutral and basic (alkaline) soils. It cannot grow in the shade. It prefers moist soil.
