Delivered to you in March / April
Named after the stretch of the Thames at Oxford, a late mid-season flowering with deep blue flowers, the stems characteristically angled towards the sun. The heads are not very big but are produced in profusion. This is not a widely grown form but ours came from Beth Chatto and she knew a good plant. Deciduous and from division.
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. As they are from division it does sometimes take a while for an Agapanthus crown to flower well again, so expect better flowers in the second year. Plant in the sun 3-4" deep and 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. In very cold gardens, mulch in winter
Height 26" (65cm)
