Agapanthus ‘Snowball’ grows in full shade to sun, tolerating heavy frosts, extended dry periods and a range of soil types.  Selected by the Auckland Botanical Gardens for it’s long flowering, fine leaved compact habit  and growing to 55cm by 55cm with pure white flowers in summer.  Feed with Osmocote Outdoor Trees and Shrubs in early spring.


‘Snowball’ makes an excellent border, a mass planting under shady trees or as specimen plants in patio tubs.  Looks good planted around Correa ‘Annie’s Delight’ in a shady area, or as a surround for Salvia ‘Black Knight’ in a sunny area.  Remove dead flower heads.
