When I was growing up in the Florida Panhandle many years ago my grandmother 
had a border of paper-white narcissus all the way along one side of her yard 
- must have been 150 feet long and three feet wide.  It must have been there 
for many years to get so thick and lush.  I can remember her picking over a 
hundred stems for some event, and you would scarcely miss them.  Paper-whites 
are marginally hardy in this area, but I grow mmore than 30 other varieties.  
I suspect that the paper-whites are the ones that do best in mild climates.
