Are you tempted by the beautiful, globe-shaped blooms of African Blue Lillies but concerned that they will struggle in the changeable British climate? Perhaps the 'Northern Star' variety of Agapanthus is the answer to your prayers! Not only does it produce an abundance of deep blue flower umbels in mid to late summer, but it is among the toughest plants of its kind. This hardy Agapanthus cultivar has attractive strap-shaped leaves and the foliage retains its green colour with a dark violet flush at the base, in most conditions, throughout the winter - particularly when given a sheltered spot. Height: 90cm (2'1"); Spread: 45cm (1'6").

Height Up to 100cm (40in)
Spread Up to 50cm (20in)

Plant Agapanthus 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.
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.
