Agapanthus praecox 'Getty White' (Getty White Agapanthus) - Evergreen perennial with foliage to 18 to 24" tall and forming a clump to 3 feet wide. Similar to typical Agapanthus praecox but with slender stemmed inflorescence bearing large rounded clusters of white flowers during late spring and summer. Plant in full sun to light shade and give occasional irrigation. Good for massing as a groundcover or used individually as an accent plant. Hardy to about 20-25 degrees F. A great white Agapanthus selection that comes true from seed. This plant is listed in Wim Snoeijer's book Agapanthus: a Revision of the Genus as a hybrid rather than as a variant of A. praecox ssp. orientalis but we originally received the seed of this plant as a white Agapanthus praecox ssp orientalis and since it comes true from seed and is not a single vegetatively reproduced plant, we continue to list it as this species.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Agapanthus praecox ssp orientalis 'Getty White'.
