“allium mont blanc” is closely allied to central asian species such as allium stipitatum, this ornamental onion of garden origin bears globes of starry, shimmering white blossoms up to 7cms across in diameter, on tall slender stems in early summer. The deep green strappy basal leaves wither at flowering time. The bulbs and crushed leaves give off the familiar “onion smell”
“allium mont blanc” thrives in fertile, weel drained soil in full sun. Plant it in the autumn and keep it well watered through the growing season. Lift and divide the bulbs only if they become crowded. Grow “mont blanc” as an exclamation point in the garden. Be sure to plant extra since the onion works well as either a fresh or dried cut flower. Give this dramatic perennial a starring role in the mixed border, or use it to dress up the vegetable garden. Bulbous alliums such as this are especially lovely combined with other late bloomers such as siberian iris, peonies, roses and meadow sage.
Large bulbs plant 20 cm deep 20 cm apart 25 per sq metre. Small bulbs plant 10 cm deep 10 cm apart 100 per sq metre.
