Agapanthus africanus ‘Alba’



African White Lily or Lily of the Nile

The White African Lilly is a herbaceous perennial widely used for its fantastic clusters of bright white globe-shaped flowers that appear on upright stems in summer. Agapanthus africanus alba is a great choice in a wide range of applications from formal beds, to dry gardens or Mediterranean planting schemes, and is also a popular choice in containers. Agapanthus africanus alba is widely used in exposed areas happily tolerating strong coastal winds.

  • Situation: Full or part sun, well-drained soil
  • Hardiness: Hardy
  • Grows to: 80cm x 5cm

Caring for Agapanthus africanus alba is fairly straight-forward and it has fairly average watering needs throughout the growing season (mid-April to September); keep the plant moist but not waterlogged.

Feed Agapanthus africanus alba regularly with a high potash feed throughout the growing season to encourage flowering. Agapanthus africanus alba will thrive in full sun and well-drained soil. The soil is important as winter water-logging will generally rot the dormant bulbs. If the soil is poorly drained grow in a container.

It is recommended to keep Agapanthus africanus alba pot-bound to encourage flowering, this is indeed true, but be careful with this approach; if it’s too pot-bound it will cause the plant to flower poorly and eventually die.
