Flower of the month: Rajnigandha
Tuberoses are called Rajnigandha in India, this name translates to “fragrant at night”. The tuberose is no doubt very beautiful but it is mainly known for its delightful fragrance. Due to their smell they have been used in the perfume industry for many many years and that is why they are an important loose and cut flower.
Another thing to keep in mind about rajnigandha is that it is a nocturnal flower. Originally it is believed to be from Mexico, despite this the rajnigandha plays a very important role when it comes to pujas in India.
When it comes to these beautiful white flowers, they are popular as both loose flowers and as cut flowers for bouquets. The main reason for their popularity is due to their pleasant fragrance and elegance. It is also used for aromatherapy since it calms the nerves. For hundreds of years, these flowers have been used in perfumers because of their high value in cosmetic products.
