Delivered to you in March / April
Derived from a strain that was developed with hardiness in mind by Lewis Palmer at Headbourne Worthy in Hampshire in the 1940s. These are a ‘swarm’ – so expect some variation, the flower colours are a range of mid-blue and in height, flower size and leafiness they also vary slightly. Generally long stemmed with orange sized heads providing an extended season of interest in the border. They are deciduous, mid season flowering and supplied from division.
For a sunny site, not too dry. Plant the crown 3" (8cm) deep, 9-12" (22-30cm) apart. If in pots, water regularly. Agapanthus are the blue summer stars for any sunny garden. 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 (as these will be) it does sometimes take a while for an Agapanthus crown to flower well again, so expect better flowers in the second year. To get a more immediately full effect you might cram them in rather tighter together in pots.
Height 18-30" (45-75cm)
