Agapanthus ‘White Ice’ (Agapanthus africanus)

The word Agapanthus is interestingly derived from the Greek words ‘agapѐ’ meaning love and anthos meaning flower.

Agapanthus enjoys full sun or semi shade where they should be planted in well drained soil. It is important to remember that low light areas can encourage less flowering.

Agapanthus ‘White Ice’ grows to approximately 40 cm in height and produces short strong flower spikes above the foliage. These spikes hold a large globular head bearing open faced white flowers which appear through the summer months, generally from December to March. Regular deep watering especially during the summer will keep these plants happy however once established they are water wise specimens. For strong leaves and exceptional flowers be sure to feed with a good compost and organic fertiliser in autumn or spring.

Agapanthus ‘White Ice’ is evergreen and indigenous and will handle very light frost. They are good for coastal gardening, make excellent cut flowers and are drought tolerant and water wise once established. Small groupings make excellent focal points; they cope well in containers and help attract butterflies and bees to your garden!
