Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
African Blue Lilies are an extremely durable variety, requiring little maintenance. Agapanthus 'Sweet Surprise' is a compact plant that produces umbels of pale blue flowers, which when fully open feature a wonderful 'star' with a unique navy stripe along the centre of each petal. These blooms are borne from late June to August on rigid, upright stems that ascend from clusters of linear, semi-evergreen foliage which makes perfect ground cover. Agapanthus 'Sweet Surprise' is an excellent cut flower choice, but is equally suited to brightening up patio containers and improving the front of perennial borders. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 50cm (20").

Grow Agapanthus plants 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.
