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: 12 'Ziva' bulbs, 10-inch green plastic bulb pan, 12-inch woven basket, potting soil, and stem support.
Shipment of Paperwhites begins in late September and continues as weather and stock permits. Please order early. 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.
