Mount Hood is a favorite of ours here in Oregon, as she is named after our local mountain. Mount Hood has huge, 5" bright white flowers. Don't be surprised if her initial blooms appear to have a hint of pale yellow. She will brighten as she ages into the most perfect ivory. She makes an excellent cut flower. Mount Hood is deer resistant and easy to grow.
Mount Hood is sold in packs of 10 for fall planting.
