Tube roses - A new entrant into my garden
The tube roses is an aromatic and white flower, so beautiful, especially when strung into a garland. I happened to visit a nursery which had the tube rose bulbs and grabbed a few of them and now, they have joined the roses, jasmine, oleanders and other flowers in my garden. The flower, also known as Nila Sampangi locally (in Tamil) or Rajani Gandha in Hindi, is offered to God,especially in the form of beautiful garlands, often interspersed with roses and other darker flowers.
