Nir is one of the best paperwhites introduced to date. Its stems are shorter and therefore much less likely to flop than those of the standard issue; its flowers are larger and showier; and its sweet fragrance, while strong, is not overpowering. Sold as individual bulb.
Paperwhites are for indoor growing only, except where winters are very mild. Allow 5–6 weeks from planting to bloom. Bulbs can be started at intervals to provide color and fragrance until after Easter. Each will produce 2–3 sturdy stems crowned with clusters of sweetly scented white flowers.
