Agapanthus 'Headbourne Hybrids'

Plant details

Agapanthus are South African plants with strap-like leaves and showy flowers in shades of blue, violet or white. They're ideal for growing in containers, from which their pretty blooms stand tall, spilling over other pots.

Agapanthus 'Headbourne Hybrids' is 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 borne 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 Agapanthus 'Headbourne Hybrids' at the front of the border, with bold coloured plants behind.
