PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Agapanthus campanulatus Ex. var. albidus|
|White Bell Agapanthus|
|Given the right conditions - full sun and rich, moisture retentive but well-drained soil, this deciduous form of Agapanthus will reward with lovely white blooms above bright green strap-like leaves, particularly if fed regularly. A good choice for large containers, but must be kept well-watered. Generally hardy, but may benefit from protection in exposed areas, particularly in hard winters. NOTE: Seeds, when offered, may have been collected from both white and other coloured plants and will be listed here separately but cannot be guaranteed to come true.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow in spring at 70F. May help to place sown pot into a plastic bag. Germination is likely to be slow and erratic, taking from 1-3 months. Transplant seedlings into 3in pots and overwinter in a coldframe or unheated greenhouse. Harden off in spring and grow on outside until large enough to plant out. If soil is very heavy it is advisable to incorporate some grit into the bottom of the planting hole.|
