Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

Description‘Galaxy White’ Lily-of-the-Nile (Agapanthus sp.) is a rare perennial with globular clusters of flowers that are out of this world! Snow white flowers bloom all summer long. They are outstanding as a cut flower and in the garden, and you'll have plenty to enjoy, thanks to its super long bloom time. It grows vigorously, creating a mound of neat, strappy foliage. While it may not be evergreen in colder climates, it will re-emerge in the spring, ready to provide another year of refreshing white blooms.DetailsBotanical name: Agapanthus 'Galaxy White' Common name: Lily of the Nile Zone: 6 - 10 Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Height x width: 2-3' tall and wide Flower color: White Foliage color: Green Season of interest: Summer Bloom time: Summer, fall Features: Rare & unusual, low flammability, heat tolerant, deer resistant, container plants, best for beginners Uses: Edging, Flower gardens, Wildlife gardens, Native plant gardens, Cut flowersHow To GrowSoil: Any well-drained soil will do. Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Water: Average moisture; tolerates drought once established. Do not overwater. Spacing: 2-3 feet Fertilizing: Not required. If more rapid growth is desired, apply a rose fertilizer in early spring. Winterizing: 'Galaxy White' will go dormant over winter, unlike agapanthus in warm climates. This is normal and not a cause for concern. We do recommend a good 2-3" layer of mulch over the plant for winter, especially in zone 6. Maintenance & pruning: Little needed. Cut flowers as desired for arrangements. If any dried portions of the plant remain in early spring, remove them before new growth begins.
Plants arrived healthy. One or two had a flower or two on them but that was it. It's late in the season so hopefully they'll surprise me with lots of flowers in Spring.
Really looking forward to seeing these grow and bloom
