Agapanthus 'Albus'

Plant details

Agapanthus are South African plants with strap-like leaves and showy flowers in shades of blue, violet or white. They're ideal for growing in containers, from which their pretty blooms stand tall, spilling over other pots.

Agapanthus africanus 'Albus' bears white flowerheads, in contrast with fresh green foliage. For best results grow in a sheltered, sunny spot, in moist but well-drained soil. In exposed areas Agapanthus africanus 'Albus' benefits from winter protection. Alternatively, grow it in pots and move indoors in autumn.
