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. We offer a complete kit: 12 bulbs (that will fill our vase twice), 4 Winterberry stems, 12" glass vase, and river pebbles.
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.
