Velvet Tuberose

No, not the Bath & Body Works fragrance (which incidentally is what seems to come up first if you search for this flower on Google) but a pretty flower. Kim got this as a gift from a friend at work some time ago and it finally flowered. It has a very nice scent which I suppose is why Bath & Body Works has a scent with its name.

Technical Specs: Canon 5D, 90 TS-E, f/5.6, ISO 400.

My name is Narda. I am getting married and wish to make a bouquet of these flowers as that is where my name comes from (Flor de Nardo) spikenard flower or otherwise known as velvet tuberose. I would appreciate any leads!!!

Hi Narda,

Unfortunately I don't know where you could buy these in sufficient bulk to make a bouquet. The person who got this flower for my wife bought it at a show.

Try a nursery that has more exotic flowers (which will depend on where you live).

Good luck!
