Add a little holiday cheer to any space

You won't believe the fragrance that comes from these precious blooms.

Pack of 5 Bulbs

Narcissus Paperwhite cheer up gloomy winter days with fragrant, 3- to 4-inch flowerheads of white blooms on 16-inch stems. Extra-large flowering bulbs produce big, healthy blooms that can be forced to bloom anytime between Thanksgiving and Valentine's Day.

The perfect holiday gift for a gardening or flower-loving friend, Narcissus Paperwhite (also known as Narcissus polyanthus) grow easily in a dish filled with a layer of pebbles and just enough water to raise the humidity. Keep the bulbs in a cool, dry place prior to forcing. They store well, so you can begin growing them in succession every few weeks for nonstop indoor blooms all winter.

Our top-size bulbs produce up to 18 blooms per spike, with a fantastically sweet scent that is particularly welcome in winter's gloom. Do find a place for them in your home this season; they will quickly become an essential part of your winter decorating scheme. Also suitable for outdoor growth in zones 8 to 10.

Paperwhites Care Guide


Carefully unpack, being especially careful around any brittle shoots rising above the soil line. Gently pull back the moss top-dressing and water thoroughly.

If you are unable to care for your pot of bulbs right away, it may be kept in a cool (not below freezing), dark location for a short period of time.


Flowering should begin in 4 to 6 weeks and last for about 2 weeks, with each stem producing 2 to 20 small white flowers. The plant will not rebloom; however, the foliage will remain fresh and attractive for a few more weeks.


Display paperwhites in a location with bright sunlight. Inadequate light will result in long, lanky stems and leaves that tend to fall over. Paperwhites grow slower and last longer when kept in locations no warmer than 65°F, away from direct heat sources. Turn container occasionally to keep stems growing straight. Support tall stems with a stake and tie loosely with twine or raffia.

Peaceful Paperwhites


Water regularly to keep the soil moist, but not soggy. Easy watering tip: place 1 to 3 small ice cubes on the soil for slow watering.


Paperwhites belong to a group of spring-flowering daffodils that are not winter hardy. The tender bulbs should never be stored at nor subjected to temperatures below 35°F. Treat paperwhites like annuals. Once the blooms and foliage fade, the plant should be discarded or composted.

IMPORTANT: Ornamental plant material should not be eaten. Keep away from pets and children.
