Product Description

Melbourne' is a stunning variety of Agapanthus producing purple buds that open in August to reveal beautiful white flowers with a lilac stripe throughout each petal. The flowers sit in a cluster above lance shaped foliage to provide a wonderful display within the summer garden at a height of 1m on sturdy stems. Also known as the African lily, these are drought tolerant and like well- drained soil and plenty of sunlight. We recommend planting within the garden border or within containers to create a feature on patios or decking. They can also be cut and used as part of an elegant floral arrangement for within the home. First grade loose rooted plants supplied.
