Product: Paperwhites Nir

Interested in sampling the newest paperwhite varieties? Or in the market for a number of small gifts, little reminders of how special those work buddies or volunteer partners are? Nir paperwhites are the latest generation of fragrant, no-chill narcissus from an outstanding grower in Israel, the best place in the world for production of these fast-to-bloom darlings. With more flower stems per bulb and a larger number of floretes per stem, these paperwhites are excellent for indoor forcing or garden use. Grow these next to any garden center variety and you’ll see the difference. (It’s only fair to warn you however, that these can be addictive – pretty, fragrant, wonderfully easy to grow and a snap to deliver a welcome supply of fresh flower all fall and winter; just plant a few every 2 weeks.)
