These wonderfully fragrant white flowers are well known to everyone as rajnigandha and are also quite easy to grow. Nursery wallahs keep an ongoing stock of bulbs which can be purchased and planted every three months to have a continuous succession of blooms. The other way is to plant them in September or October, to flower from spring to the end of the rains. Plant at a depth of 3 inches in a pot or beds. They look particularly good when grown in a clump. When the flowering is over the grey-green foliage looks decorative in a pot. Cut down the spike when it has finished flowering to encourage more spikes to come up. The bulbs can be left in the soil and separated once in a while. Staking may be needed..
