Agapanthus – Galaxy White Lily of the Nile
Usually Agapanthus are grown as tropical annuals in St. Louis, but not anymore! We are thrilled to introduce ‘Galaxy White’ Lily of the Nile, Agapanthus. You can now have the iconic globular flowers year after year with only planting once. Similar to other Lily of the Nile but with larger 5″ snowy white flowers. One of the largest Agapanthus flowers available. The flowers are born on tall 36-44″ stems over grass green foliage from midsummer into fall.
‘Galaxy White’ Agapanthus creates works of natural art right in your own backyard or container. Its majestic height along with its stunning white globes of flowers make a huge impact in the garden. Put a few in a pot by your front door for an unforgettable welcome display for your guests. Great for cottage, pollinator and formal gardens, and in containers alone or mixed with other sun loving plants.
Agapanthus appear similar to the popular bulb Allium with their giant clusters of star shaped flowers. They bloom in the summer, and produce numerous flower stalks per plant. These plants thrive with adequate moisture and will take center stage in the landscape while in flower.
This variety has overwintered in very cold winters in Michigan for over 7 years. It also reblooms! You can expect flowers all they way into September.
Plant in full sun. If planted in a container, the container should be moved into a protected area for the winter, an unheated garage or shed is ideal.
