Delivered to you in March / April
Rather earlier than most and altogether shorter with tennis ball sized heads on erect stems, the flowers are deep dark blue with a purple hue. Vigorous but smaller headed and with quite short foliage these are very suitable for pots or towards the front of a border for earlier flowering. Supplied as divisions.
With South African origins, they are all sun lovers, but 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. From division it does sometimes take a while for an Agapanthus crown to flower well again, so expect better flowers in the second year. 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 occassionally.
