This, usually, happens when the nutrient ratios of the soil are off. Usually, too much nitrogen.

In your case, I am going to say climate! Paperwhites are a very specific type of Daffodil that will not do well below zone 8. You are in zone 5, so you will probably need to choose a different variety of Daffodil. Once you do, they will likely flourish.
