Agapanthus africanus 'Alba' White Lily of the Nile

Agapanthus africanus is native to Southern Africa. It is grown for the dark, glossy, strap-shaped leaves and beautiful showy flowers. Agapanthus make good background plants or edging along a fence, driveway, or wall. These plants can thrive on conditions of neglect and naturalize readily. They also make excellent tub and container specimens and can be used in cut flower arrangements. In cold winter areas they can be brought indoors for the winter. Agapanthus africanus 'Alba' is an evergreen variety with white flowers. Plant height is 36 inches tall with a 12" spread.
