Buy Agapanthus 'Snow Crystal' African lily: Large heads of white flowers

This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • 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 from frost in winter)

    This new form has semi-evergreen foliage, and large heads of white trumpet-shaped flowers, which appear on the upright stems in mid- to late summer. It looks wonderful when used in pots, but it is also ideal for lining the edges of a pathway or filling gaps in a sunny border.

  • Garden care: Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser monthly from spring until flowering. Towards the end of September ease back onthe watering and feedingof plants in containers to allow the foliage to toughen up. In cold areas, protect the crown of the plant with a deep, dry mulch to protect them from hard frosts, or grow in a pot so they can be overwintered in an unheated greenhouse. Keep in mind that although they are everegreen in milder climates, the foliage may be killed off by low temperatures. Divide plants in spring. Divide plants that have become too big in spring, but remember you will often get more flowers when the roots are constricted.

Eventual height & spread

How many plants are needed for a RHS Chelsea cone 37cms dia. ?

Bob

Hello, It really depends on the effect you are trying to create - and if you are planting for the long term, or want a more 'instant' effect. Keeping in mind that each plant has an eventual spread of around 60cm, you could just get away with planting one, however the plants in a 9cm pot will only be around 1 year old, so it will look a little lost initially. Therefore, I would advise planting anywhere between 5 and 9 plants, and then lifting and diving them as they grow.
