Nir

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.

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.

Planting Instructions

Except where winters are very mild, paperwhites must be grown indoors in containers. Complete growing instructions are provided in our Planting & Care Instructions. A paper copy of the instructions is enclosed with every order.

when-to-plant

Spring-flowering bulbs must be planted in the fall. They need cool soil to make roots before the onset of winter. Cool fall weather arrives at different times from north to south and from high elevations to low.

Please note that the temperature of the soil lags behind the air temperature. You can generally plant later than the windows provided in this map. As long as the ground is not frozen, you can still plant.

The amaryllis are the last bulbs to arrive in the Colorblends warehouse. They are typically available for delivery toward the end of October. They can be planted upon receipt. They can also be stored in a cool, dry location for several weeks. Please note: Amaryllis bulbs may start growing before they are potted. If you decide to delay planting, open the bag(s) and set the bulbs on their roots so that the flower stems can grow straight up. And don't forget to mark your calendar or set a reminder to pot the bulbs.
Paperwhites can be potted upon receipt. They can also be stored in a cool, dry location for many weeks. Many people pot their bulbs in batches, one after the next, to keep the fragrance coming. It's not unusual for paperwhites to begin to sprout while in storage. The shoots emerge an inch or two and then stop, as though the bulbs realize they are getting ahead of themselves. The shoots often curl around the bulbs, pointing opposite gravity. After the bulbs are potted, the shoots straighten up.
