Here is a photo I took this afternoon of the FIRST bloom from the paperwhites I planted THREE or FOUR WEEKS before Christmas.  (Never give up.  Never never give up, as Winston used to say.)
I’ll send a close up of the bloom in the next message.  I suspect this is not a paperwhite at all.
Any guesses as to what it is?  I threw out the tag it came with thinking I’d be throwing out the bulbs after Christmas and wouldn’t need to keep any records.  Now that I see it, and have smelled its lovely tazetta perfume, I’m thinking I’ll keep it and try planting it outside next time. 
Reston, VA.
