Plant details

Excellent for the sunny border or as a specimen plant in a large container. The hybrids produce long, strappy leaves with a stout stem topped by a starburst of tiny, variable blue flowers from June to July. If you need a particular shade of blue, buy one which you can see in flower or a named variety. These blues mix well with white agapanthus such as 'Bressingham White' or the deep blue A. 'Loch Hope' which flowers in August and September, prolonging the show. Use free-draining soil, avoiding heavy soil which stays wet in winter. If in doubt, pot up in autumn and keep fairly dry, under cover, until next spring.
