African Lily 'Arctic Star' gives a lovely summer display, looking especially stunning as part of a Mediterranean or mixed planting scheme. In colder areas it will happily grow in large containers that can be moved undercover during the winter months. Like Goldilocks, agapanthus like their growing space to be just so.

As a rule of thumb, pot on every two years using a gritty multipurpose mix.
