Growing & Maintenance Tips for Agapanthus africanus 'Albidus'

Needs winter protection, so if grown in patio containers, store in a cool location inside. After flowering, you may want to leave the tall flower stems uncut as they will produce interesting black seed pods persisting for the remainder of the season.
