Agapanthus 'Albus'

Plant details

This plant is a clump-forming, evergreen perennial with strap-like leaves. In late summer, trumpet-shaped, flowers are produced in rounded umbels. Plants work well when planted en masse in the border or in a large container on the patio. They enjoy a sunny position in moist but well-drained soil. Agapanthus africanus 'Albus' produces white flowers, rather than the usual blue.

What should I use to feed lillies, agapanthus and other perennials? apart from the ground feed when planted, do they need additional liquid feed? Please help. Margarita
