Detailed Description

Brought to this country by Chinese immigrants in the 1800's, the Chinese Sacred Lily has been used for generations in New Year's celebrations, hence the name. This bulb was successfully cultivated in Egypt and Israel for thousands of years and has proven it's ability to perform admirably in arid locations, as well as in less challenging settings. With strong light, this variety can be forced indoors, where the flowers' delightful aroma is sweetly spicy and not musky like that of most paperwhites. For lucky gardeners in zones 8-10 these can also be successfully grown outdoors in flowerbeds. Deer and rodent proof.
