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. We ship 1 kit with complete care instructions and your greetings enclosed. As always, every gift from White Flower Farm has our unconditional guarantee.
A complete kit:
Paperwhites require no preparation and are absolutely foolproof. Bulbs will flower in 4-6 weeks from the time they are planted 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. If you start your plantings at 2-4 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.

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.

I saw this in the catalog and went online to order it and send to three different addresses. It did not seem to be set up correctly to do it online so I called the 800 number in the catalog. Although I spelled the first name and address twice, the order-taker could not make it work either. So now I guess I will order three separate items at greater expense. Very frustrating!
Paperwhites require little more than to be potted and watered to produce clusters of fragrant blooms.
