Daffodil - Paperwhites - Ziva
The Daffodil 'Paperwhite Ziva', 'Narcissi tazetta', is a fall planted bulb. Ward off winter blues by growing paperwhites indoors. Paperwhites are exceptionally fragrant flowers, that can be cultivated in pots or dishes containing either pebbles and water, or soil. They are one of the easiest bulbs to grow indoors, since they do not require any precooling. Each stem produces a perky cluster of pure white flowers.
Store the pots in a cool (50-60?F), dark place. Water once a week until the bulbs begin to grow. When the sprouts emerge, move the pots to a sunny location. Try growing in a variety of decorative materials, or adding seashells or colored stones for interest. These fast growing Daffodils are great for containers and southern climates.
