Mount Everest is truly the tallest of any ornamental Allium. The stems of giant, pure white, globe flowers can reach up to 50 inches tall. Mount Everest is also one of the only Alliums to have foliage emerge simultaneously with the flowers. Green strappy leaves last all summer to provide texture in the garden and make good camouflage for spent early spring bulbs. 

Ornamental Alliums are easy to grow and care for in both the garden and container. These bulbs are drought resistant and multiply at a moderate rate, making them suitable for naturalizing in a garden border without fear of them taking over. Deer do not give ornamental Alliums a second glance. Mount Everest is perfect for the back of the border or as the focal point for a mixed seasonal container planting. 

Mount Everest Allium Care

Mount Everest will grow in just about any type of soil as long as it is free draining. Amend heavy clay or light sandy soils with organic compost before planting. Alliums require about 1 inch of water a week and are best watered with drip irrigation or soaker hoses to keep the foliage as dry as possible. Full sun will help keep Mount Everest tall and straight. Alliums will tolerate a partly shady position but will tend to grow leggy and flop over onto other plants.

There is no pruning required for Mount Everest. Deadheading can be done to keep plants tidy, although florists prize the extra-large seedheads for dried and fresh arrangements. The seedheads can also be left in place all winter to provide interest and structure for the garden and can be cleared away in the spring as the new foliage emerges. Mount Everest can be divided every 3-4 years but does not mind being root bound in large groups. 

Mount Everest Allium Spacing

Although the overall height of Mount Everest is 3-4 feet, the spread is less than 12 inches. Place plants close together in the garden or container at 8-10 inches apart, center on center. This will help the plants support each other while blooming.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
