Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
This classic architectural plant is superb for contemporary gardens, patio containers and mixed borders. Agapanthus africanus is a hardy, evergreen perennial producing large clumps of glossy, strap-shaped leaves. From mid to late summer, umbels of deep blue flowers emerge on tall stems, making a graceful prescence in the garden. Looking particularly good planted en masse, African Blue Lily will thrive in a sunny, sheltered corner of the garden, suiting Mediterranean planting schemes well. Height: 1m (39"). Spread: 50cm (19"). Mature plants are supplied in a 12cm pot.

Flowering Months
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. Leave faded Agapanthus flower stems intact to enjoy their architectural qualities until they become blackened by frost. Border grown plants will benefit from the winter protection of an autumn mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost. Container grown Agapanthus plants can be moved to a frost free position over winter.
Repot Agapanthus plants using a good quality compost and grow them on in warm, frost free conditions until they are large enough to be transplanted outdoors. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions over 7-10 days before planting in a sunny position in moist, well drained soil. Water well to settle the soil. Alternatively, grow Agapanthus in containers using soil based compost such as John Innes No.3 and position in full sun.
