An Exceptionally Long-blooming Lily-of-the-Nile

This African Lily bears spheres of pure white flowers on stalks up to 3 feet high!
This rare African native is sure to make your garden stand out, with its strap-like foliage and long, graceful flower stalks crowned in pristine white flowers. The showy blooms come on in summer, adding a stunning accent to the garden, container, or cutflower arrangement. A great choice for a larger planter, 'White Superior' actually flowers better when its roots are contained. Another benefit of growing this gorgeous Lily-of-the-Nile in a container is that you can bring it indoors for the winter, protecting it from the icy chill of winter.

This African Lily is originally a native of South Africa and Madagascar, which unfortunately means that it is tender to the ravages of winter. Through cultivation in England, African Lily(or Blue Lily) went from a completely tender evergreen to a deciduous outdoor plant. 'White Superior' can overwinter outdoors in zones 7 to 9, but still appreciates a nice blanket of mulch in the winter. This bit of necessary winter maintenance will be well rewarded in the summer!

In July the dark green, strap-shaped foliage boasts large umbels of sparkling white funnel-shaped flowers. This variety of Agapanthus praecox blooms starting in July and finishing around September--a particularly long bloom time for Lily-of-the-Nile. The flowers also last quite a while in the vase with water.

This Agapanthus grows up to 2 feet tall and wide (3 feet tall when in bloom). This Genus was named by the ancient Greeks; it's name comes from the words "agape" (unconditional love) and "anthos" (flower). And when you see the exotic, delicate beauty of these flowers, you will understand why!

Plant 'White Superior' in part- to full-sun in well-drained soil. This exotic plant actually tolerates drought and a broad variety of soils (acid to alkaline, sandy, and even clay soils), so long as the soil is very well-drained and not too cold. Zones 7 to 9.
