Agapanthus campanulatus var. albidus
White bell agapanthus
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Hardy
Flowering period July-August
Height 2ft/60cm
Light preference Full sun
Soil preference Rich, moist, well-drained
Sowing time/depth Spring, barely cover
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.
