Over the years I've given many potted Paperwhite Narcissus bulbs to friends as a living holiday gift, usually three bulbs per pot. I prefer to plant them JUST before giving the present to them so they can witness the emergence of the shoots followed by the lusciously fragrant white flowers, especially if they have kids. Some people find them TOO sweet, but I love that smell...then again I love night blooming jessamine, gardenias, certain Old Roses, citrus blossoms and Confederate Jasmine. You can get the bulbs locally or mail order. SUPER EASY to grow and can be very affordable. Perfect for children to participate in.
