Agapanthus Alan Street

The July RHS magazine 'The Garden' arrived recently and in it is an article about the 4 year Agapanthus trial at the RHS Wisley Gardens. One of the best performers in the trial, and now a deserved recipient of an RHS Award of Garden Merit is 'our' Agapanthus Alan Street. It is a beautiful dark flowered seedling identified by the eponymous Alan here many years ago, Its near indigo coloured flowers are produced in profusion in July/August over a foliage that is deciduous and the leaves will be lost before the winter, so they are hardy. All the same, it is still worth mulching their ‘crowns’ with something in the late autumn – if this is soil-enriching manure all the better as they are hungry feeders,  We will have plants available in the spring to order and so to get an email reminder add your email address here.
