The scoop on Paperwhite Nir Bigs (17+cm)

Nir is one of the newer varieties of paperwhites, with flowers that mirror traditional blooms and a scent that's a bit lighter. Bigger bulbs produce more stems and more flowers per stem. The photo above shows a 13/14 cm bulb typically found at local stores with the much larger 17+ cm bulb sold here.

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.
