Description

If want to make a big impression, Agapanthus 'Albiflora' XXL is the answer. Introducing African lilies to your planting schems is always a good call - these perennials will reward you with huge, high-impact summer flowers for years to come. While Agapanthus is known for taking its time to build up a dense root system before it starts flowering, our XXL clumps will yield speedier results. Supplied as a chunky bundle of roots, it's ready to go straight into the ground or a snug-fitting pot, they’ll soon settle in and provide you with such a gutsy show that anyone will think they’ve been growing there forever!

These white African lilies are a real summer highlight, producing large, rounded flower heads on sturdy, upright stems. A great addition to sunny borders in cottage and coastal gardens—they’re also known for enjoying having their roots restricted which makes them a great solution for hot, dry and narrow spaces along south-facing walls as well as large patio pots. To get them to start flowering as soon as possible, don't give them too much space. Agapanthus 'Albiflora' XXL start flowering once the roots feel cramped and confined!

Useful information

    • Soak your Agapanthus 'Albiflora XXL' roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting.

    • Plant your "White African lily" bare roots into temporary pots with a multipurpose compost in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors.

    • Choose a pot which comfortably fits the bare roots. Some have a noticeable crown which should be just below the soil surface with any top growth exposed.

    • Plant out into borders or permanent containers in late spring or early summer once in full growth. Choose a position in sun or shade depending on the variety.
