This product is out of season, register and an email will be sent to you when it is available to order.

A beautiful dark-flowered seedling identified by our head nurseryman Alan, here, some 13 years ago, we first listed them in 2013. Nearly indigo-coloured flowers are produced in profusion, on a dark stem, the heads not too congested, so that one sees the individual flowers. Outstanding. The foliage is deciduous. One of the very best at the Wisley trial where it was awarded an AGM in 2019. Plants from 1 litre pots. 

Planting Instructions

With South African origins the Agapanthus are all sun lovers, but there they would be used to summer rainfall so we suggest they will do better where they aren't too dry. Hence lots of organic matter in the soil to hold the moisture will pay dividends. They will flower this summer but flowering in future years will be progressively more impressive. A. Alan Street is a very dark flowered inky -blue coloured form about 30" tall (75 cm) flowering in July / August. The bigger forms need planting about 12" (30cm) apart. To get a more immediately full effect you might cram them in rather tighter together in pots. Remember though to give the pot regular watering through the summer and some liquid feed occasionally. Plant them a little deeper than currently potted (1" or 25mm) in good light and allow for a spread of 18" (45cm) by the third year. Only in the far north would you need to consider protecting them in winter when they will be dormant. If you plant them in pots remember to protect those pots over winter, they are more cold affected than plants in the ground.
