Paperwhite Narcissus 'Ariel' is an earlier bloomer than the familiar 'Ziva' and bears 14-18 large, fragrant flowers on each stem. Its snowy white clusters make a dramatic centerpiece or holiday bouquet. Paperwhites belong to a group of Daffodils that are not hardy for us, but are easily grown in a pot or vase indoors. Their large clusters of pure white flowers arch above graceful, blue-green foliage, and their perfume fills a room with fragrance. Paperwhites require no preparation and are absolutely foolproof. 24 bulbs.
We suggest that plantings be started at 2- to 4-week intervals to keep the show running all winter (bulbs will flower 4 to 6 weeks from planting). Bulbs may be held for weeks in a warm, dark closet, which allows plenty of flexibility in orchestrating displays for holidays or other special occasions.
Shipment of Paperwhites begins in late September and continues as weather and stock permits. Please order early.
HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.
WHEN WE SHIP
We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

I planted my paperwhite bulbs in deep glass vases, so "staking" wasn't an issue. The bulbs were incredibly dependable, blooming right on schedule every time, and requiring little maintainance in the process. The blooms were fragrant, showy, beautiful, and I was able to stagger plantings and keep the fresh blooms coming almost every other week.

GREAT PAPERWHITES - BEST I'VE HAD IN YEARS. STRONG STEMS DIDN'T FLOP OVER OR NEED TO BE TIED UP, AND SHORTER THAN OTHERS I'VE BOUGHT FROM OTHER PLACES. NOT AS FRAGRANT AS OTHERS.
Evelyn R. from New Haven, CT
I only put 3-4 bulbs in a 17" vase and they yield up to 12-15 stems. I have never had paperwhites perform this reliably and will not purchase any other variety as this is as good as it gets!!! I have not in any way been compensated for this review. It really is that fantastic!
Paperwhites require little more than to be potted and watered to produce clusters of fragrant blooms.
