I grew this indoors in water and it took about 9 week from start to bloom. The scent is BEAUTIFUL - citrusy and fragrant without the annoying muskiness of paperwhites. However, the flowers were under-whelming - very small (about size of a quarter) and not a show stopper.

This is an heirloom Southern Tazetta often called and sold as 'Double Roman'. Blooms very early in the deep south--December thru February.
