The all-time favorite bulb for indoor forcing is the Paperwhite Narcissus. Large clusters of pure white flowers arch above graceful, blue-green foliage, and their sweet, musky perfume fills a room with fragrance. Paperwhites require no preparation and are absolutely foolproof. When bulbs are planted in early December, they will flower in 4 to 6 weeks with seldom a miss. To make a good thing even better, we select extra-large bulbs of Narcissus 'Ziva', which produce more bloom than you've ever seen on a Paperwhite.
A complete kit:
We suggest that plantings be started at 2- to 4-week intervals to keep the show running all winter. 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.

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.

Deb from Philadelphia, PA
We noticed a terrible manure-like smell in the kitchen after a few weeks. Finally traced it to the paperwhites. Thought maybe it was from fertilizer in the dirt, so cut the flowers and put them in a vase, composted the dirt. Flowers still smelled awful. Hugely disappointing.
Did anyone else complain? None of my other houseplants have this odor. Am assuming there was organic matter in the soil you sent - you may want to research this.

This is my most favorite Christmas present to receive. I have had them from other places, but the ones from White Flower are bigger and taller and bloom more perfectly than any I have ever had before.
Paperwhites require little more than to be potted and watered to produce clusters of fragrant blooms.
How to Grow Paperwhites
