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 plus potting soil.
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.
