Agapanthus 'Snow Cloud'

African lily

9cm pot £8.99 Buy

  • 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 August
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need protection in winter)

    Huge globes of tightly packed, snowy white, trumpet-shaped flowers rise above broad, evergreen, strap like leaves in July and August. This stunning African lily is particularly free-flowering, and it will add height to the middle of a sunny, moist, but well-drained border. It also looks fabulous grown as a specimen in a large patio pot. Although hardier than some other varieties, in cold, exposed areas container-grown specimens will benefit from a deep, dry winter mulch.
  • Garden care: Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser throughout the growing season. Keep reasonably dry during the winter and protect the crowns with a dry mulch in the autumn. Divide plants that have become too big in spring, but remember you will often get more flowers when the roots are constricted.
