Autumn Colors

Australian Paper White

An unusually sturdy form of Paper White with very heavy substance in the flowers, unusually broad petals, and very strong stems. 10-12" tall, carrying 15-20 florets, pure icy white throughout.

A very vigorous plant with broad leaves and sturdy bulbs, increasing well. A good pot plant, as this one is shorter and stockier than many varieties making it a very well-proportioned plant.

This is the Paper White ancestor of the various Pearl and Primo types, blooming along with them in February, later than other Paper Whites.

Established bulbs make good clumps with numerous stems. Good for wet or dry locations.
