The scoop on Paperwhite Nir Giants (19+cm)

Looking for the largest paperwhite bulbs growers' produce? You've found them! A small fraction of the paperwhite bulbs harvested each season are giant 19cm bulbs and they are rarely available. We're delighted to be able to offer these oversized beauties this season. Because, after all, bigger bulbs produce more flower stems and more blooms per stem. (The second photo is of one large 17+cm bulb and 1 giant 19+cm bulb, for comparison.) A trio of these big bulbs can be nestled into a 6" pot, no more.

Nir is one of the newer varieties of paperwhites, with flowers that mirror traditional blooms and a scent that's a bit lighter.

Why Grow Paperwhites?

  • Enjoy fresh, snowy white flowers during winter
  • Bulbs need no chilling or special conditions
  • Easy to grow on a sunny windowsill
  • Fragrant and fresh
Paperwhites are easy to grow in bowls of pebbles, marbles, tumbled sea glass or just regular soil. See our planting guide, right, for complete instructions. Then choose the number of bulbs you'd like; don't forget about gifts.
