Agapanthus are hardy predominently evergreen perennials originating from South Africa and as such are well suited to similar conditions found around Australia.

Cultural Care

Select a sunny location in most soil types given that it is well draining. No pruning is required although removing spent flowers increases further production. Hardy and dry tolerant once established. An addition of a slow release fertiliser during spring would be beneficial to overall performance.

Colour Schemes: A 'Silver Baby' has predominently white flowers and as such can be incorporated into any colour scheme. As it flowers through the warmer months it is particularly refreshing to adapt a 'cooler' scheme including blues and purples with perhaps a little yellow added for some drama. You are certainly not limited to any range with this one, however, so let your creativity flow!
