Paperwhites are tender Narcissus that are hardy only in Zones 8-10. As such, they are best grown indoors and treated like annuals.
If the room in which Paperwhites are growing gets too warm, the plants tend to get “leggy.” To prevent this, a temperature of 68-70⁰ is best. When the flowers appear, moving the container to a place that receives indirect sun or diffused light will help the flowers last longer.
Paperwhites look best in clear containers and when clustered together. They are also excellent to interest children in gardening because of their ease of planting, rapid growth and fragrant flowers.
