Delivered to you in March / April
Refined large headed long stemmed plants with dense heads of silver grey, turning slightly pink as they age. From the Savill Garden near Windsor. Late mid season flowering with semi-deciduous foliage, 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. It does sometimes take a while for an Agapanthus crown to flower well again, so expect better flowers in the second year. This form need planting in the sun 3-4" (8-10cm) 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 30" (75cm)
