Paperwhites

Paperwhite Bulbs

The most popular group of tazettas for indoor forcing are the famous "Paperwhites".  Paperwhite narcissi are wonderful for saying "spring" even in the dead of winter, with their sprays of delicate blooms scented with musky fragrance.  Flowers are produced in clusters with each bulb producing several stems.  They are especially nice during the holiday season and are ideal in pretty bowls with pebbles or soil.  Pot up in early November for Christmas blooms.  For a full look, plant 5 to 8 bulbs in a container at least 6 inches in diameter and 3 to 4 inches deep.

In Southern climates, they can be planted outside with no pre-cooling.
