What a magnificent sight – a cluster of hundreds white, star-shaped flowers that form a massive flower ball! Allium Mount Everest is amazingly tall and grows at least 1 meter above all other flowers in the garden. The maximum height of this sturdy flower can reach up to 125 cm in length and it is one of the tallest members of the allium family. This allium is named after the highest mountain in the world – Mount Everest, due to its massive height and show-white flowers.

Allium belongs to the same family as garlic and onion, that is why it’s called an “ornamental onion”. Make sure to plant your allium in a dry and well-drained (sandy) soil and open areas with full sun.

Other information

  • First loosen the soil well where the allium bulbs will be planted. Then the soil is easier to work with.
  • Dig a hole and make sure it is 2 to 3 times as deep as the height of the bulbs.
  • For the distance between the bulbs, make sure it is 2 times the diameter of the bulbs.
  • Plant the flower bulbs in the hole with the pointed side facing up or with the root base facing down.
  • Cover the allium bulbs with soil and water them well.

Pre-orders can be placed until the first week of August, which will be shipped in the first half of September and delivered in October.
