I have this problem with 'Paper White'. The buds die just before
opening. Or they open to very stunted, deformed flowers. I have been
told that it is too much shade, too little shade, not enough water, not
enough fertilizer, etc, etc.
All my others seem to do very well, even the 'Mount Hood' growing right
next to the 'Paper White'. Some have been blooming every year for over
20 years. Thus, I doubt all the suggestions. I think it is that the
variety is not suited to my climate.

This seems to be a common problem with certain doubles.
Too damp the bud rots, too hot it bakes. And if they do
open, they don't last long because of high evaporation
from excessive surface area. The shovel takes care of
plants that don't do well in my climate...
