Narcissus tazetta 'Italicus'

If you live in more northern parts of the South and long for some sort of paperwhite, then the Italicus is your answer. The most notable aspect of the flowers is their star shaped petals appearing on the numerous flowers emerging from a single bulb. Narcissus tazetta 'Italicus' is similar to the Chinese sacred lily, as it contains a multi colored cup, but is a lemon yellow cup as opposed to a solid gold. This is enough to indicate a slightly sweet smell. You can expect solid multiplication and continued blooms for this generation and the next.

It can be hard sometimes for me to stay focused in January. Although there are bulbs blooming in the field, as I drive around I don't see the massive displays of color that I see later in the spring. That is, I don't see large displays of color, until my eye is struck with a cemetery filled with creamy white, highly fragrant blooms. I take out my camera and capture the scene, and my eye once again is reminded to never, ever stop looking for pretty bulbs in the many different, often forgotten places of the world. These truly do extend the seasons of color in your personal garden, giving you that splash right after the first of the year.
