Dear Jane,
	Thanks for the correction. I had a very old faint label to guess from.

	Yes it does look like a paper white in bloom... a very teensy 
tiny paper white. If anyone is looking for a floral display, a cut 
flower or any kind of show, this is NOT the Narcissus for you. I 
consider it a collector's item that I am done collecting and passing 

	On the plus side the flowers are so tiny and prefect that 
they are a good conversation piece in a garden club.

			Enjoy		Jim W.
