Questions About Paperwhites

    I hope you enjoyed your flowers! Paperwhites are in the narcissus family but they are tropical and won't survive in your climate. They are best treated as annuals and tossed out when done blooming. Even if you could plant them now, reblooming is rarely successful. The bulb has spent its energy stores. In the US, only the coastal south is able to plant paperwhites outdoors. In their native tropics, the foliage has lots of warmth and bright sun to regenerate the bulb.
