Plant details

The 'Headbourne Hybrids' are a particularly fine, hardy, vigorous strain of agapanthus with handsome, grey-green, strappy foliage. From mid to late summer, heads of numerous sky-blue, bell-shaped flowers are produced on short, upright stems. Grow plants en masse in the border or in a large container on the patio. They enjoy a sunny position in moist but well-drained soil. For a striking effect, plant at the front of the border with bold coloured plants behind.
