description for "Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Mont Blanc'"

'Mont Blanc' is breathtaking. Like twin snowcapped peaks rising from the earth, the two 18-inch-tall stems of this top-size bulb bring on an avalanche of creamy white flowers. No special expertise is required to reach each plant's pinnacle, a cluster of 3 or 4 blooms, 6 inches in diameter. Even novices can successfully take on 'Mont Blanc,' a favorite among amaryllis adventurers since its introduction in 1980. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
