Allium Mount Everest is everything one would expect of an allium with this name. Impressive snowy white, globe-shaped flowerheads grow atop strong, sturdy stems approximately 32-36" tall. Planted against a dark background, they add height and interest to the late spring through early summer garden. With blooms lasting 3-4 weeks, they're versatile and hardy, attracting butterflies and bees no matter where they're grown. They return year after year with minimal care and attention.
Growing Instructions: Select a spot in the garden that receives full sun to light shade where the soil drains well. Loosen the soil, and plant the bulbs, pointy end up, approximately 8" deep and 5-6" apart. Tamp down the soil and water well after planting. Flowers may be cut for use in indoor arrangements. Foliage should be left to die back naturally as it provides the nutrients the bulb will need to grow and flower the following year. Bulbs may also be planted in containers and tubs at a depth of approximately 4". Planting tip: Select a site carefully for your Allium Mount Everest. Because they do not like to be moved, permit them to stay where they were originally planted for 3-4 years before moving them to another location. Bulblets often form along the main bulb. When flowers diminish in size, dig the bulbs up in the fall, remove the bulblets and plant them in another location or give them to family members and friends to use in their gardens.
