Paperwhites Indoors

//Paperwhites Indoors

These are paperwhites, the most common Narcissus for forcing inside in northern areas but also grown in warm winter gardens. Paperwhite flowers are extremely fragrant. One of the questions many who have these inside ask is if they can plant the bulbs outside in the spring, or if it’s possible to make them bloom again indoors. Unfortunately, these are bred to be a one-bloom indoor bulb. They are not hardy in the Northeast, so can’t be planted outside. Enjoy them indoors while they are in flower but then throw them in the compost once the flowers die – they only blossom once.

One thing we often recommend is to buy some new paperwhite bulbs NOW, so that when these are done you have the new ones to start and enjoy the process all over again!
