Agapanthus Africanus 'Albus'

White Lily Of The Nile

White Lily of the Nile (Agapanthus africanus 'Albus') is known for its tall stalks topped with small, bell shaped white flowers. Native to South America, this plant grows best in partial to full sun, and does well in containers or rock gardens. A. africanus self seeds and will spread itself freely, growing to a height as tall as 36 inches. This plant is an attractant for butterflies and birds, and requires little care, which makes it a popular choice for gardens. However, touching the plant can cause an allergic reaction, and gardeners should take care to wear gloves before handling..
