Agapanthus africanus 'Albus' (African lily)

Agapanthus africanus ‘Albus’ (African lily) £16.99
Position: full sun Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil (or John Innes no 3 compost for containers) Rate of growth: average Flowering period: July to September Hardiness: half hardy (will need protection in winter) A wonderful white form of African lily, with globes of trumpet-shaped flowers from July to September. This bold perennial provides a perfect focal point for a sunny, well-drained border or in a patio container. Where temperatures fall below zero, container-grown specimens should be overwintered in a frost-free place. Garden care: Keep well-watered during the growing season, applying a balanced liquid fertiliser each month from spring until the plant flowers. Towards the end of September ease back on the watering and feeding of plants in containers to allow the foliage to toughen up. Overwinter container-grown specimens in a cool greenhouse or conservatory, watering sparingly.
