Out of the same stables as the popular 'Mount Everest', 'Mont Blanc' boasts deep green strappy leaves and large, dense, spherical heads of pure white blooms. Picture shows buds about to open. Flowers May-June. Height 90-120cm. Bulb size 18/20cm. (Bulb sizes quoted in centimetres refer to the circumference of bulbs. All bulbs are sourced from cultivated stocks.)
These hardy perennial 'ornamental onions', which explode into bloom in early summer, are becoming ever more popular for creating dramatic border displays, and for cutting. And even when the initial display is over the dried heads look amazing in the garden or in a vase indoors.
