Blooming Paperwhites!

My Paperwhite Narcissus are blooming!

My paperwhites are beautiful and starting to bloom! The degree of bloom varies from container to container throughout the house, depending on the amount of sunlight they've received and the temperature of the room.

The bulbs in this container in my kitchen are at four varying stages of growth - all in the same container!

When I posted about "forcing" bulbs for Christmas, I recommended starting them 4 - 6 weeks before you want them to bloom.  In my new home, 4 weeks out seems to be optimal.

Joyeux Noël, Mitty

  1. How beautiful I love those. I am going to try growing some after the holidays on my fireplace mantle.
