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 'Midnight Blue' is a compact agapanthus, making it the perfect choice for growing in containers and small gardens. It bears trumpet-shaped, very dark blue flowers in mid- to late summer. 

For best results grow Agapanthus Midnight Blue' in a sheltered, sunny spot, in moist but well-drained soil. In exposed areas protect from frost in winter, or move potted plants indoors in autumn.
