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, especially when paired with the red berries of Winterberry Holly (Ilex verticillata) in our wide hurricane vase.
A complete kit:
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. If you start your plantings at 2- to 4-week intervals you can 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. We enclose detailed instructions for growing with your order.
Shipment begins in early December.
Please note: Winterberries are not for consumption and are best kept away from pets and small children.
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.
We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

There's not nearly enough room/rocks for all of the bulbs, and the winterberry stems are so short that they look ridiculous. Not worth the money, for sure. Maybe it'll look better once the narcissus grow, but I'm not holding my breath.

I agree with previous review that the winterberry was MUCH shorter than the photo. It looked ok once the bulbs grew out, but it was a really tight fit in the vase. My winterberry dried out quickly b/c there was not enough room in the vase for each stem and the bulbs to be in the water. You can use the vase over and over again. Slightly over priced.

My husband surprised me with this for Christmas. I love it. I don't know what the other reviewers are talking about the winter berry stems were extremely long and fill the vase beautifully while waiting for the Narcissus to bloom! Thanks soo much!
Paperwhites require little more than to be potted and watered to produce clusters of fragrant blooms.
