Agapanthus 'Rancho White' (Dwarf White Agapanthus) - This dwarf Agapanthus has foliage that only reaches 1 foot tall with narrower leaves than typical Agapanthus. It is very similar in stature as the cultivar 'Peter Pan', but has white flowers. It is semi-deciduous in that it is more likely to drop its leaves in cooler temperature than the larger A. orientalis varieties. We have long grown this plant under this name but note that in the 1980's this cultivar was considered to be confused in the trade and was also called 'Peter Pan 'White' - See more about this in our listing for Agapanthus 'Henderson's White'. Sun/Light Shade. Low watering needs, but looks better with moderate water. Hardy and nearly evergreen to about 20-25 degrees F.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We also try to incorporate comments received from others and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Agapanthus 'Rancho White'.
