Our Paperwhite Narcissus is Blooming!
And the timing was excellent. They bloomed just in time for Judy’s return from a week-long trip. She was worried they would already be faded by the time she was back.
Of course, she pointed out that I had failed to water the Narcissus as she had requested. They seem to have survived my neglect just fine, but I apologized anyway.
I am just not an indoor plant person. It may appear that I obsess over every plant in our garden. I can hear these outdoor plants calling out – water me! deadhead me! Indoor plants must speak in a frequency that my ears cannot recognize.
Though it must be said that Paperwhites are very cheering during these dreary days of January. We also have an Amaryllis that just refuses to do much of anything. We planted it at the same time as the Narcissus but it barely shows any growth. I wonder if something is wrong with the bulb.
Are you growing Paperwhites this winter?
