When I came to the letter "T" I was a little stumped. The only two I can think of *(I am sure there must be others) that I would choose to grow if I could would be:
TULIP: This is an Eurasian and North African genus of perennial, bulhous plants in the lily family. It is an herbaceous herb with showy flowers, of which around 75 wild species are accepted.
Whenever I think of tulips I connect them with the Netherlands, and also our Araleun Botanic Park right here in Perth where they have a tulip festival every year. Years ago we went to Araluen and the gardens of different coloured tulips was beautiful. Would love to go again one day (perhaps).
I have never attempted to grow them nor am every likely to do so. I feel there may be one of our number who does or has grown them at one time. Would be interested to know if that is a fact.
The other "T" flower which I love but have never attempted to grow is the:
TUBEROSE .... Polianthes tuberosa...This is a perennial plant related to the agaves, extracts of which are used as a note in perfumery. The common name derives from the Latin tuberosa, meaning swollen or tuberous in reference to its root system.
I was amazed that they are related to the agaves!! I had a very limited knowledge of tuberose so I have just been reading up about them and find they are not very difficult to grow. Apparently they prefer a temperature above 15º (not sure if that is celcius or farenheit) so I may be tempted to try a couple in pots. I believe they are/were popular for use in bridal bouquets. They are certainly very beautiful.
I truly can't think of another "T" flower that I have knowledge of. What is your favourite "T" garden flower? Once again I am pondering if one of our friends has grown tuberose. I am guessing it is highly possible.
